SUMS Presents: Vivaldi and Schubert

On Saturday 24th May, SUMS performed their first concert of 2014, SUMS Presents: Vivaldi and Schubert. The concert was accompanied string orchestra and organ along with four fantastic soloists – Josie Ryan (Soprano), Jenny Duck-Chong (Mezzo Soprano), Paul Sutton (Tenor) and Jonathan Chan (Bass).

The concert opened with Vivaldi’s Magnificat, a nine-movement Canticle filled with rich contrasts of tonality, tempo, meter and rhythmic figures, homophonic and polyphonic textures and choral and solo contrasts. This was followed by Schubert’s six-movement Mass in G. The youthful work is known to create a devotional mood characteristic of Schubert’s religious compositions and showcases the composer’s immense lyrical skill.
