Ohimè!vivicantando

Below is our proposed program, comprised entirely of Monteverdi duets and solos. The arc of the program takes the listener from a “glass half-empty” to a “glass half-full” state of mind, portraying the relatable journey of love’s trials and tribulations.

Our namesake, Vivi Cantando, is derived from "O come sei gentile" found in Monteverdi's seventh book of madrigals. The name translated means "live singing." While we love collaborating with instrumentalists, our mission in creating this ensemble was to celebrate the singing arts and to create a true human experience through the sung word.

Julie Bosworth, soprano
Janna Critz, mezzo-soprano
Marc Bellassai, harpsichord
Niccolo Seligmann, bass viola da gamba
