“Once upon a midnight dreary…” begins Edgar Allan Poe’s Gothic poem and tonight you will surely yield to its spell in composer Nicholas White’s world premiere of The Raven, exquisitely sung by the newly formed Raven Consort. And then this enticing program of music for voices and strings takes a heavenward direction with Pergolesi’s glorious Stabat Mater.
Event begins at 8:00PM
Presented by: Dumbarton Concerts
Featured Artist(s): The Raven Consort
