The Emerald Chamber Orchestra is presenting another in its ongoing series of Cantatas: The Stabat Mater by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. This remarkable work was composed in the last year of Pergolesi's life, when he was only 26 years old.
We will perform in its original scoring for string quartet and harpsichord.
Join us in the beautiful acoustic of the Christian Science church located at the corner of 14th and Pearl streets in downtown Eugene. This is a free concert, but with a suggested donation of TEN dollars which helps cover the costs of paying the musicians.
Covid protocols will be in effect for this concert: The Emerald Chamber Orchestra requests that attendees show their vaccination cards and wear masks during the performance.
Harpsichordist Richard Guy will be playing a brand new, two-manual Flemish harpsichord at this performance. The instrument is on loan from the Eugene Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. The string ensemble will be led by violinist Wyatt True of the Delgani group.
