Community choir will perform Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ Sunday

LOGAN –- Sunday evening Elisabeth Evans will lead an interfaith choir in a performance of Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” a Mass cantata (musical liturgy) that celebrates God and Christ.

The performance, at 6 p.m. at Logan’s First Presbyterian Church, is one of two each year that Evans likes to “do big.” She has directed the church’s Chancel Choir since 2009, and has conducted community choir performances of Christmas and Easter cantatas as well as Logan’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebrations.

“Twice a year, I try to expand the choir’s experience to include bigger works, and invite members in the entire community to join us,” Evans said. “In this way we end up with an interfaith choir.” Sunday’s performance will feature about 20 singers and is accompanied by seven orchestra members including a string quartet, trumpet, oboe and harpsichord, she said.

The group has been practicing every Sunday since February because this performance can be difficult in certain sections.
