You may not know composers Andrea Gabrieli, Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Heinrich Schütz, Adrian Willaert, and Barbara Strozzi. But you will understand the title of the upcoming concert featuring their work: "Serenissima – The Glory of Venice." Conducted by William Weinert, Voices is a professional vocal ensemble. The program will include music for voice, brass, strings, and organ from "The Golden Age of Art and Music." It was a time from the early 16th century to the late 18th century, when the Venetian Republic was referred to as "La Serenissima," meaning 'the most serene.'
Voices performs Friday, October 11, 8 p.m. at Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1040 East Ave., Free, 274-1100, erchoirs.org.
