Winter 2017-18
Holiday Concert

Christmas Vespers

Friday, December 29, 2017 at 8 pm
Old Saint Patrick's Cathedral
Mott and Prince Streets
Nolita, NYC

ARTEK's holiday extravaganza will be the seasonal highlight of 2017! ARTEK has been performing the music of 17th-century German composer Johann Rosenmueller since 2011, when the ensemble's brilliant recording of his cantatas was released. ARTEK performed his Vespers for the first time in 2012 to enormous acclaim. Rosenmueller's music combines the grand Venetian style of Monteverdi's Vespers with the monumental German style of sacred music leading up to Bach's B-minor Mass. 8 outstanding singers will be joined by ARTEK's string ensemble led by violinist Cynthia Freivogel, international wind players from Les Sacqueboutiers de Toulouse and American wind specialists, and ARTEK's renowned continuo team.

The concert will be performed in the marvelous acoustics of Old Saint Patrick's Cathedral, a gem of a venue located in downtown Manhattan.
