In its sixth season, Christopher Eanes’ Collegium Cincinnati sets out to celebrate the installation of the new C.B. Fisk organ in Christ Cathedral with a special inaugural concert slated for Sunday, October 21 at 5:00 pm. The music will replicate that of a 17th century Roman vespers service in which some of the works of Giacomo Carissimi, Francesco Foggia, Girolamo Frescobaldi, and Virgilio Mazzocchi will be performed by the Collegium’s singers and instrumentalists.
Later on in the Collegium’s season , a multi-year exploration of three monumental masterpieces begins with a performance of Bach’s Mass in B Minor.
Elsewhere in their 2018-2019 line-up, Soprano Alexandra Schoeny and pianist Marie-France Lefevbre will give a song recital with music by Jonathan Dove, Libby Larsen, and Samuel Barber. And, as traditional with the Collegium, there will be a performance of Handel’s Messiah in December.
But before all that happens, the good people at the Collegium invite you to spend a special afternoon on September 30th at 4 pm at the Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts, with countertenor Michael Maniaci and oboist Mark Ostoich, performing music from the Baroque and beyond, while guests sip a cocktail.
