Live in-person and live streamed from the newly renovated Ripley Chapel at First Congregational Church. Please join us for a delightful and poignant evening of seasonal vocal music featuring two of Boston’s most exciting performers, Daniela Tosic and Adriana Ruiz. From haunting chants to cheering Baroque duets, from Fauré to haunting contemporary carols, Ms. Tosic and Ms. Ruiz are sure to bring warmth, beauty, and mystery to a cold winter’s night.
Ms. Tosic and Ms. Ruiz will offer a program of lilting and moving duets: “Laudamus Te” from Vivaldi’s celebratory Gloria; Gabrieli’s Missa Brevis in F; Fauré’s gorgeous Messe Basse; touching arrangements of “Coventry Carol” and the Irish “Wexford Carol.” They will each offer solos as well, including Spanish Christmas carols and Hildegard chants.
Mezzo-soprano Daniela Tosic, praised for her “burnished and warm sound” (Boston Musical Intelligencer) and “dark, lustrous voice” (Boston Classical Review), is a soloist and a chamber musician who specializes in early, contemporary, and world music repertories. She has toured throughout the U.S., Europe, and South America, including the Utrecht Early Music and the Maastricht Musica Sacra Festivals; the Flanders Festivals of Gent and Brussels; Boston Early Music Festival, Jordan Hall and more. Ms. Tosic has recorded for Telarc, MDG, Kalan, Boston Revels, and several independent labels.
First prize winner of the French Song Contest held in Havana, Cuban soprano Adriana Ruiz has performed in multiple venues throughout Paris, France. A specialist of early music, she was named an Early Music America (EMA) Emerging Artist. Recently, Ms. Ruiz appeared as soloist and ensemble member with the award-winning Apollo’s Fire, touring to New York City, Cleveland, and Chicago.
