Concert Description

Nicholas McGegan, long hailed as "one of the finest baroque conductors of his generation," leads a program dedicated to the dramatic and virtuosic music of Antonio Vivaldi. A true innovator, Vivaldi wove excitement into his concerti, and gave us one of sacred music’s most uplifting choral works: the Gloria in D.


Nicholas McGegan, conductor  Bio
Nicholas McGegan is a pioneer in the process of exporting historically informed practice beyond the small world of period instruments to the wider one of conventional symphonic forces, guest-conducting the Concertgebouw, Suisse Romande, Halle, and Philadelphia orchestras; the Detroit, Toronto, Sydney, Montreal, and Houston symphony orchestras; and such opera companies as Covent Garden, San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Washington.
