Lauri D. Goldenhersh’s Weekly Highlights
In one of their less-common jaunts north to Los Angeles, BACH COLLEGIUM OF SAN DIEGO returns to St. John’s Cathedral on Saturday for an even rarer presentation of ‘La Resurrezione’, Handel’s 1708 oratorio, with period instruments and vocal soloists ALIC TEYSSIER, RYLAND ANGEL, SCOTT MELLO, and MISCHA BOUVIER. Presented as part of Da Camera Society’s “Chamber Music in Historic Sites” series — these concerts often sell out. For concert info, click here
After a tumultuous year, special congratulations go to SAN DIEGO OPERA, celebrating their 50th anniversary with a gala concert Saturday and Sunday. International opera stars will perform arias, duets and ensembles in downtown San Diego, under the leadership of conductor KAREN KAMENSEK, with a crowd of fans who have plenty to cheer about.
