[Note: The Sunday performance is sold out.]

The historic Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist will become a time capsule to the early 18th century on Sunday and Monday when the Acadiana Symphony Orchestra, joined by the Acadiana Symphony Chorus and choruses from UL Lafayette, present “Venice 1712,” a celebration of Italian Baroque music. The concerts will feature music by Vivaldi and Gabrieli, a pair of Baroque masters who composed and made their home in Venice at the time and many of their compositions were performed in St. Mark Basilica. If you’ve never heard Baroque music performed in the acoustically precious cavern of a cathedral, you’re in for a treat.

ASO patrons will also have the opportunity to collect passport stamps as part of the orchestra’s 2012-2013 season, enabling them to collect cool prizes from Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry, Cochon and the symphony, and Lee Michaels will provide a scholarship to the ASO Conservatory of Music with the participation of 500 patrons in the passport program.

The Sunday concert begins at 3 p.m.; Monday’s event commences at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 general admission; $5 for students. For tickets or information on the concerts, visit the ASO’s website here.
