Tucson Monastery to host Arizona Repertory Singers

Tucson Monastery to host Arizona Repertory Singers - (05-12-2013)

The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration will once again host the amazing Arizona Repertory Singers in concert later this month in Tucson, Ariz.

The group will perform three concerts in the chapel of the Benedictine Monastery located at 800 N. Country Club Rd.: 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 13, and 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 15.

According to the ARS website: “We will inaugurate our 30th anniversary season with performances of J. S. Bach’s Magnificat in D major and Respighi’s distinctive yet seldom-heard work, Laud to the Nativity. Both compositions capture the essence of their respective eras: Bach’s Magnificat is noted for its “Festive” five-part scoring for mixed voices and orchestra, and is a stylistic masterpiece of the Baroque era (1600-1750). Respighi’s pastoral cantata, Laud to the Nativity, has simplistic charm and utilizes his unique orchestral color and subtle harmonic nuance characteristic of early 20th century Italian music.”

Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased online. Tickets will also be sold at the door prior to the performance, but due to limited seating, the group suggests purchasing tickets in advance.
