The Chamber Orchestra's Fourth Season opener begins with two English gems: Holst's energetic St. Paul Suite and Elgar's sentimental Sospiri. The program features Respighi's rediscovered Suite for Organ and strings, which will be premiered with organist Kyler Brown (Director of Music, Church of St. Jean Baptiste). Mr. Brown and The Virgin Consort will then join the Chamber Orchestra and Maestro Di Vittorio with its premiere of the recently published Oratorio "The Garden of Roses" by Alessandro Scarlatti. A gorgeous display of madrigal-like arias, this recently restored oratorio was considered one of Scarlatti's masterpieces. Songs from this Oratorio have recently been championed by mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli.
