Ohimè!vivicantando

Composed entirely of Monteverdi duets and solos, the arc of this 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.

The ensemble's 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 they love collaborating with instrumentalists, their mission in creating this ensemble was to celebrate the singing arts and to create a true human experience through the sung word.
