Tuesday, October 13 at 8:00PM at St. Ignatius of Antioch Church, 552 West End Ave. at 87th St, The American Classical Orchestra continues its season with George Phillip Telemann’s Day of Judgment. Telemann, in 1755, wrote the powerful dramatic music for voices and orchestra, a rarely performed programmatic work with characters representing unbelief, reason, religion, and devotion that is structured around four ‘contemplations’. The music ranges from a terrifying ‘Right hand of God is raised’ chorus to magnificent arias such as ‘I am awakened to wisdom’. It will feature grand and fiery choruses, ending in a blaze of trumpets, horns and drums. The American Classical Orchestra Chorus, a finely-trained choir and natural partner with a period instrument ensemble, will showcase the timbres of the period instruments’ blend with the human voice.
In this unique concert, all 16 of the choristers will have solos as they play the character roles. Soloists will include Sopranos Jennifer Bates as Seliger; Lucy Fitz Gibbon as Glaube; Amanda Sidebottom as Religion; Katherine Wessinger as Erzengel. Alto soloists are Donna Breitzer as Seliger; Helen Karloski as Vernunft; Elizabeth Merrill as Andacht; Sarah Craft as Glaube. Tenor soloists will be Brian Giebler as Spötter; Alex Guerrero as Unglaube; Lawrence Jones as Seliger; Wilson Nichols as Glaube. Bass soloists are Dominic Inferrera as Johannes; Enrico Lagasca as Andacht; Steven Eddy as Jesus and Jonathan Woody as Unglaube.
The concert will be preceded by a Pre-Concert Lecture at 7:00PM by Maestro Thomas Crawford.
