California Bach Society Rachmaninoff: The All-Night Vigil

Sergei Rachmaninoff’s monumental All-Night Vigil has been described as “the last great crowning achievement of Russian Orthodox choral music, a masterpiece from a composer at the peak of his creative powers.” Often called the “Rachmaninoff Vespers,” nine of the Vigil's fifteen movements are based on Orthodox chant. Paul Flight leads a chorus of 35 singers with soloists Gabriela Estefanie Solis and Mark Bonney. For this program, we are delighted to welcome Glenn Miller and Eric Alatorre, two of North America’s finest basso profundos.

On Saturday, March 2, we present a free pre-concert lecture at 7:15 by Paul Andrews, co-founder and first musical director of the Bay Area's Slavyanka Chorus. Doors for the free lecture open at 7:15.
