UWA Music presents: Rossini - Petite messe solennelle Other events...
Rossiniís 'Petite messe solennelle' is a musical curiosity, and written 30 years after his retirement from writing operas. The sacred text of the Missa solemnis is set to music which is sometimes delicate, often witty, and frequently over-the-topÖ while poking fun at Rossiniís own (and other composersí) musical styles.

In this salon-style performance we present Rossiniís original and rarely heard version for two pianos, harmonium/piano accordion, and 11 singers. (Spoiler alert: Sadly we canít meet Rossiniís direction of 12 singers of three sexes: men, women and castrati).

If you love a melody and sparkling music, the Callaway Music Auditorium on Sunday 26 August at 3pm is the place you need to be.

Tickets: Standard $20 | Concessions $18 | Friends of UWA Music $15 | School students attend for FREE (email [email protected])
