Ritorna Vincitori - The Verdi Chorus Fall 2021 Concert

Ritorna Vincitori - The Verdi Chorus Fall 2021 ConcertThe Verdi Chorus, now in its 38th season, celebrates the return to live performance with their Fall Concert, Ritorna Vincitori! for two performances only at the First Presbyterian Church in Santa Monica on November 13 and 14.

Led by Founding Artistic Director Anne Marie Ketchum, the Verdi Chorus is the only choral group in Southern California that focuses primarily on the dramatic and diverse music for opera chorus. This program, which Ketchum says includes “both the most joyous and the most dramatically reflective moments from some of the most powerful operatic works,” will feature selections from Verdi’s Aida, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, Boito’s Mefistofele, Bizet’s Carmen, and Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci.

The program will feature four guest soloists: critically acclaimed soprano Shana Blake Hill, who has been described as a “fearless actress” and “visually and vocally voluptuous” by Opera News and The Philadelphia Enquirer, award-winning mezzo soprano Audrey Babcock, who is quickly gaining notoriety for her commanding, powerful performances as Carmen and her dark, hypnotic portrayals of Maddalena in Rigoletto, tenor Alex Boyer, hailed by The San Francisco Chronicle for his “large and potent sound” and renowned baritone Roberto Perlas Gómez who, with over 100 roles to his credit, has performed extensively throughout the United States.

These performances are made possible, in part, through the generous support of the Sahm Family Foundation and The Green Foundation, and by grant funding from the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, and the Santa Monica Arts Commission.
