Laudate Singers and artistic director Lars Kaario bring their 14th season to an exhilarating close, as they join forces with violinist Nancy DiNovo and an ensemble of Vancouver’s finest Baroque instrumentalists for Viva Vivaldi! The choir and orchestra will present such beloved Vivaldi masterpieces as the joyful Gloria, the refined Beatus Vir (both featuring soprano soloists Catherine Crouch and Heidi Ackermann and mezzo-soprano Jennifer Stephanson) and the Credo. DiNovo will also perform the glittering Spring movement from Vivaldi's most famous work, The Four Seasons.

Viva Vivaldi! provides a brilliant, spirited conclusion to a season that – in true Laudate fashion – has ranged from the very old to the brand new, including several world premieres of new pieces by Canadian composers. The choir’s varied programming has spanned centuries, cultures and musical styles, taking audiences on a journey through the ancient mysteries of the medieval mass, the colourful sounds of the tango and, now, the beauties of a Baroque Venetian spring. Hearts will be lifted and ears dazzled, as Laudate Singers, Nancy DiNovo and friends give virtuoso performances of some of the most popular works in the Western classical canon.
