St. Thomas Aquinas Church, 401 Alderman Rd, Charlottesville
Tier 1: $37 / Tier 2: $27 / Student: $10

The Oratorio Society of Virginia will finish our 55th season with the rich sounds of Rossini’s ‘Petite Messe Solennelle’ and ‘Missa Syllabica’ by Arvo Pärt in the exquisite acoustics of St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Charlottesville or via live stream.

Come enjoy the rich sounds of Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle and Missa Syllabica by Arvo Pärt in the exquisite acoustics of St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Charlottesville. Far from petite, the Rossini mass is the last large-scale work he completed more than thirty years after he retired from composing opera.  By contrast, Pärt's much shorter setting written in 1977 is an early example of his remarkable meditative musical style. Join us to experience this extraordinary music! We will also be offering a livestream option for this performance.
