Event Announcement: Monteverdi 1610 Vespers in DC

Next Saturday, November 15, Third Practice will perform Claudio Monteverdi’s exquisite 1610 Vespro della Beata Vergine in the context of the sacred liturgy in Washington, D.C.. The work will be performed alongside a new setting of the Litany of the Saints by Baltimore-based composer, Joshua Bornfield. This rare liturgical celebration of Monteverdi’s epic work has been made possible by a recent Kickstarter campaign.
