About this event

The acclaimed Saint Paul’s Choir of Men and Boys presents a triumphant classical music concert on Sunday, May 15, 3 pm at St. Paul’s Parish, 29 Mount Auburn Street, Harvard Square, Cambridge. The performance is conducted by Saint Paul’s Choir School (SPCS) Director of Music and Choirmaster James Kennerley.

Joining the performance is renowned soloist, Grammy-Award-winning soprano and early music rockstar, Amanda Forsythe, and members of Melius Consort, a period-instrument orchestra founded by Kennerley in 2019, featuring instrumentalists from Handel and Haydn Society, Boston Baroque, and other fine early musicians from across the United States.

The hope-inspiring concert features the Billboard Classical chart-topping Saint Paul’s Choir of Men and Boys, angelic voices performing a thrilling program in Saint Paul’s Church’s sublime acoustic setting. This season the performance offers works of two of the most enduring classical composers of all time - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Vivaldi. Repertoire includes Mozart’s elegant and uplifting “Sparrow Mass” (Missa brevis in C), the sublime “Laudate Dominum”, and Vivaldi’s famous “Gloria”.

This will be the first time the Choir of Saint Paul's has performed Baroque and Classical music with historical instruments.
