Composer Antonio Vivaldi was initially ordained as a priest, and known locally as “the Red Priest” because of his red hair. His clergy career was short-lived, as Vivaldi followed his passion for music and become one of the greatest Baroque composers.

On March 25, the Concert Singers of Cary Symphonic Choir is presenting Vivaldi’s Dixit Dominus RV595, a setting of Psalm 109 that celebrates the promised triumph of good over evil. It rivals Vivaldi’s much-loved Gloria for exuberance and splendor.

Also in this program, the CSC Chamber Choir and nationally-acclaimed soprano Kathryn Mueller will perform works by three women composers from the Baroque era: Leonarda, Cozzolani, and Strozzi. A perfect way to recognize Women’s History Month!
