Rautavaara's Vigilia

  • Cathedral of St. John the Divine 1047 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY, 10025 United States

This transcendent and unique setting of the Finnish Orthodox service was premiered at the Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki in 1971, yet it has never been performed in its complete concert version of both Matins and Vespers in the United States. We are proud to collaborate with the composer and the Erkko Foundation in presenting the U.S. premiere of this stunning work for a cappella choir and soloists.

SOLOISTS
Halley Gilbert, soprano
Sara Murphy, mezzo-soprano
Marc Day, tenor
Malcolm Merriweather, baritone
Matt Boehler, bass

Kent Tritle, conductor
