This special concert celebrates the Italian tradition during the nine days before Christmas, originating in folk music, where peasants playing musical instruments would go from town to town re-enacting the shepherds’ adoration of the Christ-child. This was transformed into the high art pastorale and was subsequently incorporated into the concerto form making it a celebration of the nativity. The highly acclaimed Ensemble OrQuesta was created in 2013 by its artistic director Marcio da Silva. It is dedicated to performing baroque music in all its richness and diversity. The church will be decorated to reflect the Venetian theme.
