Lyricism through the ages

In August 2018, Third Practice joins the Frederick Camerata for their summer concert series! As always, we bring our engaging blend of old and new to the program, including the world premiere of Tawnie Olson's newest work, Incantation for voices, cello, continuo organ, and percussion. Third Practice sopranos Shana Oshiro and Shauna Kreidler Michels will lend their stunning voices to the Concerto Spirituale of Giorgio Frederico Ghedini. While rarely performed in the states, this work made an important impression on Ghedini's most famed student, the young Luciano Berio. Its blend of Italian lyricism and neoclassical rhythmic drive makes for a thoroughly engaging experience! Our program closes with one of the most beloved masterworks of the Baroque era, Vivaldi's Gloria (RV589). A must-see for lovers of classical music in central Maryland!
