Final Green Mountain Project with Performances of Monteverdi’s “Vespers Of 1610” in New York and Venice

Throughout the 2019-20 season, TENET Vocal Artists draw inspiration from the city whose musical offerings are a mainstay of the preëminent early music ensemble’s programming: Venice. Season highlights include a celebration of Barbara Strozzi, Venice’s most acclaimed female composer of the baroque era; the Italianate music of German composer Heinrich Schütz who studied in Venice, and works by Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi – two of “The Serene Republic’s” most renowned composers. Continuing a long-standing commitment to the spirit of collaboration, TENET Vocal Artists pair with instrumental ensemble New York Baroque Incorporated for a holiday performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, and performances with Montréal-based Ensemble Caprice. Capping the season is TENET Vocal Artists’ most ambitious presentation to date: the Green Mountain Project’s final performances of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 in New York City and, bringing the work home, in Venice.
