Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 (Chicago)
The sensuous allure of the East and the structure of the West. They met in Venice in 1610 – and the splendor resounded. Jeannette Sorrell leads chorus, strings, brass, lutes, and soloists in Monteverdi’s sumptuous masterpiece.

“Hugely gripping… Sorrell and her forces brought superb energy and clarity… an exhilarating evening.”

Handel’s Messiah (Chicago)

Handel’s Messiah (Chicago)
Sound the trumpet! Jeannette Sorrell, soloists, and chorus bring their nationally acclaimed interpretation of Messiah to Chicago. The singers become musical storytellers, bringing spirituality and theatricality to Handel’s richly layered masterpiece.

“Sorrell led superb voices and a stylish orchestra… a splendid performance with wonderful vitality… rich, robust sound and crisp diction by Apollo’s Singers…. It’s difficult for a ‘Messiah’ performance to stand out. But this one did.”
