Cultural Camerata du Mont-Blanc Concert Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

About

On Sunday 03 July 2022 from 17:00:00 in 18:30:00
Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (74400)

To kick off the summer season, the Camerata du Mont-Blanc chamber orchestra and the vocal ensemble In Octo will honor the great Johann Sebastian Bach, Alessandro Marcello and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The vocal music and the oboe of Emmanuel Johan will join the strings of the Camerata du Mont-Blanc for two concerts as guests:

- Saturday, July 2 at 6:00 pm in the magnificent baroque church of ND de l'Assomption in Cordon, which the group loves for its acoustics particularly suited to baroque music,

- Sunday, July 3 at 5 pm in the church of Saint-Michel in Chamonix.

The vocal ensemble In Octo, still unknown since it will be its first public performance, is a chamber choir of 8 singers composed of high level amateurs and professionals, whose vocation is to allow the Camerata du Mont-Blanc to widen its repertoire to sacred music, and to propose musical alternatives to the public of our valleys in a specific a cappella repertoire going from the composers of the renaissance to more contemporary styles such as jazz or pop music

On the menu of this first musical combination:

- by JS Bach, the Concerto for oboe d'amore in A Major BWV 1055
- by JS Bach, the Cantata BWV 150 "Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich
- by A. Marcello, the Concerto in D minor
- by WA Mozart, the Divertimento in Bb Major K137
- by JS Bach, a version for string orchestra and solo oboe of the piano concerto BWV 971 called "Italian Concerto".

Doors open half an hour before the concert.
