YST Voice Department
In celebration of the 450th anniversary of Monteverdi’s birth (1567) the voice department will present selections from his early madrigals, duets of love and war and his most famous opera, Orfeo. Taking Monteverdi’s innovative approach as inspiration, we will present other innovators who stand nearby in the alphabet, showcasing Mozart’s vocal music with opera scenes and solos as well as Mendelssohn, who despite being somewhat less innovative as a composer, was very much at the innovative forefront in other ways.
