PUCCINI’S MESSA DI GLORIA
Sterndale Singers with Bel Canto Choir, Firth Hall, 3:30-4:50
Piano - Jonathan Gooing
Tenor - Graham Neal
Baritone - Jon Openshaw
Director - Robert Webb
A host of voices leap and bound through this energetic, operatic mass
Before writing his famous full-scale operas, including Madama Butterfly and La Boheme, an 18-year-old Giacomo Puccini blended opera with church music to create the exuberantly rich and colourful Messa di Gloria. There’s bound to be an extra air of jubilation at this performance too, as the Sterndale Singers celebrate their 40th Anniversary in 2017. Sterndale are joined by the Mexborough and Swinton-based choir, Bel Canto.
You can see Graham and Jon perform again in a rather different concert (!) on Sunday evening at Yellow Arch. More information here.
