ENCORE PERFORMANCE!

MUSIC FROM THE VENETIAN OSPEDALI

Sunday, June 8 at 4:00 PM

The Women’s Antique Vocal Ensemble and chamber orchestra    will perform music from the ospedali, or hospitals, of Venice,     which ultimately transformed themselves from helping disabled   and orphaned girls through the power of music into conservatories of music where only females were permitted to perform. Great composers like Vivaldi, Hasse, Galuppi, and Porpora worked at various ospedali during the 18th century and wrote music specifically for the young girls and women to perform. The women of WAVE, accompanied by a string orchestra, will recreate the distinctive sound of the music performed at the four ospedali in Venice.
