Holiday Concert - Dixit Dominus and The Nutcracker Suite
Students from the vocal and orchestra departments create a lovely holiday concert inspired by the mood and music of the season.
Dixit Dominus, George Friederic Handel's baroque masterpiece, is a setting of the Latin text of Psalm 110, which begins with the words Dixit Dominus, "The Lord Said." The work was completed in April 1707 while Handel was living in Italy and is his earliest surviving autograph. Dixit Dominus is scored for five vocal soloists, chorus, strings and continuo. It is considered a showpiece for both singers and instrumentalists alike.
Dixit Dominus will feature different soloists at each performance. The orchestra will also perform Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.
