Classical Notes: Baroque 2000’s Champagne Christmas Concert


Baroque 2000’s last concert of the 2018 Season will take place on this Sunday 23 December  at 11:30am at the Church of the Mariannhill Monastery.


Says Baroque 2000 director, Michel Schneuwly: “Champagne was perfected by Dom Pérignon (1638–1715) who was a monk and cellar master at the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers (France) and who lived

at the same time as the various composers featured in our concert programme.  So this is a bubbly event not to be missed! Come and celebrate with us!”


Items to be heard on Baroque 2000’S Champagne Concert  programme include: Vivaldi’s ‘Paris Concerto’ RV 114; Merula’s Chaconne, the arias “Deposuit Potentes”  from JS Bach’s Magnificat,  ‘Comfort ye – Ev’ry Valley Shall be Exalted’ from Handel’s Messiah and ‘Thrice Happy from Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, sung by (tenor soloist, Sandile Mabaso; ‘La Follia’  by Vivaldi; and Manfredini’s Christmas Concerto.


A complimentary glass of champagne and snacks will be offered at the end of the performance in the magnificent Inner Court of the Monastery.


Tickets at the door are R 150. Ample and safe parking available.


This project is sponsored by Die Rupert Musiekstigting.
