Rossini: Petite Messe Solennelle

Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle is not petite in musical delight. Though originally written for piano and organ accompanying only twelve singers, it gains in joyous intensity when performed by larger forces. Written over thirty years after Rossini stopped composing operas, his mass was intended for operatic voices, and New Dominion Chorale's performance features dazzling soloists from the Metropolitan Opera: Sharon Christman, Elizabeth Bishop, Barry Banks, and Mikhail Svetlov, with keyboard virtuosi Thomas Pandolfi, pianist, and Todd Fickley, organist. Hear New Dominion Chorale conducted by Artistic Director Thomas Beveridge in Rossini's amazing feat of creative renewal.

The performance is Sunday, October 23, 2022, at 4 p.m. in Saint Luke Catholic Church, 7001 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA, with free parking on site.
