Rossini: "Petite Messe Solennelle" - Saturday, March 12 @ 7:30pm

The Petite Messe Solennelle is the most substantial of the works written by Rossini during his later years, and is one of the most remarkable compositions of his entire career, demonstrating his ability to write beautiful melodies, unfailing sense of colour and drama, and great contrapuntal skill. The Petite Messe Solennelle is neither petite nor solemn and reflects Rossini's characteristic wit.

Join us Saturday, March 12 @ 7:30pm at Fraserview MB Church for an evening of Rossini. We will be joined by the North Shore Chorus and guest artists Catherine Laub, Jennifer Stephanson, Matthew Stephanson, George Roberts and Barry Yamanouchi, and anchored by our own accompanist Tom McPherson.
