635 Purchase Street
The Greater New Bedford Choral Society is pleased to present Gioachino Rossini’s “Petite Messe Solennelle” under the direction of Jonathan F. Babbitt at 3:00 pm on Sunday, January 13, 2019, at Pilgrim United Church of Christ, 635 Purchase Street in New Bedford.
Composed in the latter part of his life, this work brings Rossini’s operatic expertise to the sacred genre with bold conviction and more than a little bit of humor. The chorus will be joined by soloists Patrice Tiedemann, soprano, Allison Messier, contralto; Giovanni Formisano, tenor and David Tinervia, bass, and be accompanied by Raymond Buttero on piano and Jonathan F. Babbitt on harmonium. Tickets can be obtained securely online at GNBCS.org or at the door and are $25 per person; children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult. Snow date is Sunday, January 20th at 3 PM in the same location. The Choral Society accepts all credit and debit cards as well as cash and checks
