Scratch concert: Dvořák

This year we have gone for Dvořák’s Stabat Mater, one of the most moving works in the choral repertoire in its original version for choir, soloists and organ. The concert will be conducted by Salvatore Caputo, accompanied by organist-in-residence Jean-Baptiste Dupont, and four soloists: Rira Kim (soprano), Adriana Bignagni (mezzo soprano), Olivier Bekretaoui (tenor) and Pascal Introvigne (bass).
The « scratch » choir will spend two weekends working with our art director Salvatore Caputo, ably assisted by Damien Sardet, choir master with the Eurydice women’s choir and assistant to Eliane Lavail at Polifonia. Xinhui Wang, studying at the Bordeaux Conservatoire Jacques Thibaud, will be at the piano for rehearsals.
The dates for the rehearsal weekends have been set for June 24-25 and September 16-17, 2017 , to be held at the Lycée Victor Louis de Talence: Saturday 2 to 6 pm and Sunday 9.30 am to 12 noon and from 1.30 to 5 pm. The reference score is the Peters edition version for voice and piano, which of course should be thoroughly revised before the first week-end. To sing at the concert, choir members must attend every rehearsal… a non-negotiable obligation! The dress rehearsal will take place on Sunday October 8th from 6 to 9 pm at the Cathedral of Saint André in Bordeaux.
Applications to join the scratch choir are now open. Please click on this entry form for the Dvorak scratch concert.
