Southborough: Assabet Valley Mastersingers perform Rossini's last work

March 9, 2014

| $3

Region – Assabet Valley Mastersingers (AVM) will present a somewhat unconventional sacred work at St. Mark's School, 25 Marlboro Road (Route 85), in Southborough at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, March 9. Gioachino Rossini in 1863 was commissioned to compose “Petite Messe Solennelle for a small evening concert in the private chapel of a palatial Parisian home. Artistic Director Robert P. Eaton and the AVM chorus aspire to replicate this intimate quality with accompaniment provided by two pianos (Judy Yauckoes and Mark Bartlett) and the unique sound of harmonium (a small upright reed organ) played by the renowned Kevin Galie. Vocal soloists Andrea Matthews, soprano; Krista River, mezzo; Charles Blandy, tenor; and baritone Thomas Jones will complete the ensemble.

Tickets may be purchased at Robinson Music Company, Westborough; Shattuck Pharmacy, Northborough; Shrewsbury Federal Credit Union, Shrewsbury; English Garden Florist, Southborough; Serendipity Jewelry, Art, & Whimsy in Hudson; and both Joy-Den Jewelers and Main Street Caf in Marlborough. Advance sale tickets are discounted $3 from the general price of $25; $20 for students and senior citizens. WGBH members will receive a $3 discount at the door.

St. Mark's auditorium is handicapped accessible with alternative parking at Woodward School, 28 Cordaville Road (Route 85), and a free shuttle service. Assistive listening systems and large-print programs are available at all concerts.
