Rossini's Stabat Mater


Saturday, March 6, 2010 7:30PM

Rossini's Stabat Mater
 








Start with the entire Oregon Symphony. Add the glorious sound of the Portland Symphonic Choir’s 125 voices and four of music’s most talented young vocal soloists. Combine them all in a theatrical choral masterwork by one of opera’s favorite composers.

Sit back and be blown away by what just might be the single most spectacular hour of music Portland will experience all year.
