Vivaldi and the Ospedale della Pieta (online)

Tuesday 20 July 2021

Saturday 21 August 2021

Antonio Vivaldi’s joyous Gloria was famously composed for the musicians of the Ospedale della Pietà orphanage in Venice. Similarly, the Baroque composers Porpora and Hasse were also high-profile teachers who wrote choral works for their Ospedale pupils in Naples and Venice, combining social enterprise and musical excellence in a way that resonates powerfully with the ethos of St Martin’s.

Please note this performance of Vivaldi Gloria will be performed with an SATB choir of St Martin’s Voices rather than upper voices.
