Come experience the joy of Christmas through the uplifting music of Vivaldi! The Most Holy Trinity Parish Choir and chamber ensemble will perform Vivaldi's 'Gloria' on December 15th at 3:30 PM.
This concert is FREE and all are welcome to attend. It will be held in the sanctuary of Most Holy Trinity Catholic Church, located at the corner of 8th & Telfair in downtown Augusta, GA.

Vivaldi's 'Gloria in D' is his most popular setting of the hymn 'Gloria in excelsis Deo,' and it remains one of sacred music's most uplifting choral works. Composed for the young women's choir of a Venetian orphanage, the Gloria is a joyful hymn of praise and worship, exploring emotions ranging from festive exuberance to impassioned supplication across 12 movements. The piece's triumphant celebrations and tender meditations perfectly capture the prayerful hope of Advent and the joy of Christ's coming at Christmas.

The concert will also include a selection of richly festive traditional and classical Christmas music.
