St. William Catholic Church, St. Simons Island
Free and open to the public!
New Renaissance, an island ensemble of 15-20 volunteers, will present Antonio Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” featuring soloists Rhonda Hambright and Vanessa Mincey, a string quartet and organ accompaniment by John Harper. Conducted by Dr. Kermit Breem, the program will include madrigals and other a cappella selections.
New Renaissance current members are a varied lot whose occupations include – or included for those retired – high school and college teacher, hospital vice president, foundation director, judge, physician, counselor, lawyer, accountant, chemical engineer, and even a musician or two. Many are active in local churches as chorister, director, and organist. All are avid singers with a love of – and talent for – singing quality music. This is a program not to be missed!
