On Sunday, January 26 at 3 PM, the Concert Artists Series at Haverford College presents “VIVA VOCE!” featuring premieres of Curt Cacioppo’s arias, monodrama and motets on verses by the esteemed contemporary Venetian poet Luigi Cerantola.  This program marks the Philadelphia area recital debut of Marlboro Festival soprano Kristina Bachrach, and the ensemble debut of the Viva Voce Chamber Singers under the direction of Nathan Zullinger in Cacioppo’s motet cycle Women of Ancient Greek Myth for a cappella choir. Oboist Evan Ocheret makes a cameo appearance in Cacioppo’s Gloria. The composer accompanies Ms. Bachrach in the first half of the program. 

Cacioppo’s vocal music has been hailed for its “operatic opulence” (Michael Caruso) and “abundant lyricism” (Filippo Focosi), and was described in the single word  “Exciting!” by the legendary bass-baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.  

This concert will be held in Roberts Hall, Marshall Auditorium. Ticket prices are $20 (adult), $15 (senior), $10 (student) $5 (child age 7-17), and free to the Tri-College community. Tickets can be purchased in advance through Brown Paper Tickets.
