Austin Baroque Orchestra & Chorus

For All the Saints, our annual performance of Latin American music, will feature music for the feasts and holidays of the liturgical year. With music for Mass, Matins, and Vespers for major feasts like Christmas, Corpus Christi, and the Assumption, as well as minor feasts like St. Joseph’s Day and regional celebrations such as St. Ildephonsus’ Day and the Solemnity of Our Lady of Guadalupe, this program will be a fiesta of musical beauty! This is always our most popular show of the season, and this year’s concert will feature three pieces that have not been performed since they were written! Music by Salazar, Jerúsalem, Tollis de la Rocca, Sumaya, Salas, Nebra, and more.
