Ragazzi Continuo in Concert at Trinity†St. Peter’s

Ragazzi Continuo, the men’s a cappella choir composed of alumni of the acclaimed Ragazzi Boys Chorus, invites you to join it at its first in-person concert since 2019, NORTHERN LIGHTS. This remarkable vocal ensemble will present an eclectic and deeply moving program which evokes the depth and beauty of the night sky. Featuring a number of composers from Scandanavia and the Baltic region, audiences will delight in the vibrancy and urgency of Nordic harmonies, including Përt Uusberg’s beautiful “Õhtul”, moving traditional Latvian folksongs, Jaakko Mantyjaarvi’s dynamic song cycle of 4 Shakespeare texts, and a sweeping SATB arrangement from Swedish composer Nils Lindberg, “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?”

Continuo will also perform songs from around the world which highlight the inspiration that the sky and stars bring to all, including the late Canadian composer Diane Loomer’s “Ave Maris Stella”, Eric Whitacre’s celestial “Lux Aurumque”, and Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodaly’s “Esti Dal” or, “Evening Song”. NORTHERN LIGHTS is certain to provide an engaging afternoon that will bring audiences sensations of joy and wonder and is not a concert to be missed!
