After a three year hiatus, the Great Bend Chorale and Youth Chorale resume their tradition of a fall masterwork performance with Vivaldi’s magnificent Gloria, RV 589. The Red Priest’s setting of this Catholic hymn has resonated with audiences in ways that he could never have imagined. Since it’s discovery about a century ago, at least 100 recordings of have been made in addition to the many film and television soundtracks it has graced.
First Chairs are the principals of each section of the orchestra, responsible for each section’s unity and musicianship.
Each First Chair patron will receive a number of acknowledgments, but the primary is a named chair or chairs in the proscenium theater of our planned center. Patrons also receive:
- Advance access to both individual and season tickets, including the option to reserve their named chair(s) for their chosen performances.
- Pod Squad Third Wave status, which is our membership program for complimentary access to classes, lessons, ensembles, concerts, and events.
- Invitations to First Chair events throughout the capital campaign (such as this concert) for community insiders to get news and updates first about everything from capital progress to collaborations with Jazz Alley acts to assemble a world class jazz season.
