The St. Louis Chamber Chorus returns to live performances this weekend with a perennial favorite – the Gloria (RV 589) of Antonio Vivaldi, complemented by motets from his Venetian precursor Claudio Monteverdi. This baroque repertoire contrasts with a new commission from award-winning composer Melissa Dunphy, who specializes in vocal, political, and theatrical music. Find more information and tickets here.

Melissa talks with Classic 107.3’s John Clare about this new piece (the first since the pandemic began that she’ll be able to hear in person) as well as the experience of returning to the SLCC as a composer.
