Santa Sophia Catholic Church, 9800 San Juan St. in Spring Valley
The 2015-2016 performance season of the Grossmont Symphony Orchestra and Master Chorale continues with a special choral/orchestral project in honor of the 260th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The 7:30 p.m. concert at Santa Shophia Catholic Church in Spring Valley opens with his operatic overture to Don Giovanni and ends with a performance of his Requiem—a bookending of works that share a common theme: the first recognizing a man’s judgment by God for his many sins, and the last asking God for entrance of one’s soul to Heaven.
The program is contrasted with a piece of chamber music that the composer wrote for flute and string trio: Mozart’s Flute Quartet in A Major, K. 298 as performed by GSO principal flautist, Kay Van Tassell, and members of the Grossmont Symphony String Quartet.
The performance of Mozart’s Requiem will feature four professional soloists to include: Audra Nagby, soprano—music faculty member on faculty at Grossmont College; Sarah-Nicole Ruddy-Carter, mezzo-soprano—and graduate of the music program at Grossmont College; Alvin Almazan, tenor; and Michael Sokol, baritone.
