A Note from the Executive Director

Mark Powell_Cappella-Romana_Board and StaffDear friends,

Cappella Romana just successfully completed one of its largest seasons ever. Last month the ensemble recorded Steinberg’s Passion Week, the remarkable work performed complete for the first time in April, with Grammy-award winning producer Steve Barnett.

This coming season is the ensemble’s most ambitious, with 13 performances in the Pacific Northwest series: 5 programs performed on Fridays in Seattle, and Saturdays and Sundays in Portland. We’re thrilled to be able to offer you more of “the Northwest’s leading chamber choir” (Oregon ArtsWatch).

The first program of the season is performed on Labor Day Weekend, an unusual time for certain for a classical concert. However the performances in Seattle and Portland of “The Fall of Constantinople” are given just prior to the ensemble’s first appearance at the Utrecht Early Music Festival in the Netherlands, the most important Early Music festival in the world. The concert given there (on September 7) will be broadcast on all the major European broadcasting networks, including the BBC, Radio France, and German Public Radio.

Here in the Northwest, there’s still time to subscribe: you can save a lot if you buy all five concerts!

I look forward to seeing you at Cappella Romana this coming season.

Yours Sincerely,

Mark Powell
