Works by two youthful composers comprise the third concert in The Choral Society of Pensacola’s 81st season. "Crowning Glory" features Mozart’s "Coronation Mass" and Puccini’s "Messa di Gloria," both written when their composers were in their twenties, although Mozart had already established an international reputation and Puccini was still a student. Composed a century apart, these settings of the ordinary of the Roman Catholic mass represent two contrasting styles: the elegant classicism of the eighteenth century and the lyric romanticism of the nineteenth. Pensacola Opera’s young Artists in Residence will serve as soloists, beginning a new partnership between two of Northwest Florida’s most significant musical organizations. They are Evelyn Saavedra (soprano), Gillian Cotter (mezzo-soprano), Frederick Schlick (tenor), and Brent Hetherington (baritone). They’ll perform with a sixty-voice community choir and an orchestra comprising some of the area’s finest musicians, all under the direction of Xiaolun Chen.
