mayfest2016

The 2016 May Festival, which celebrates and concludes Music Director James Conlon’s 37-year tenure, kicks off on Friday, May 20 (8 p.m.) at Cincinnati Music Hall with Mozart’s exquisite “Great” Mass in C minor. With its grandiose choruses, pristine virtuosity for soloists and soaring expressiveness, this is one of the composer’s most-beloved works. Also on the program are Mozart’s Ave verum corpus and Exsultate jubilate. Soprano Lisette Oropesa, mezzo-soprano Elizabeth DeShong (who has recently received rave reviews for her recent performances as Calbo in Maometto at the Canadian Opera Company), tenor Ben Bliss and baritone John Cheek bring their artistry to these masterpieces along with the May Festival Chorus (professionally-trained chorus composed primarily of dedicated volunteer singers from around the Tri-state) and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, all led by Maestro Conlon.
