November 16, the Chancel Choir at First United Methodist Church Coppell will present Antonio Vivaldi’s “Gloria” (RV 589) with organ and orchestra. This short but powerful work of the Baroque era is one of Vivaldi’s most popular and oft-performed works, especially around the holiday season.mThe RV 589 (RV is short for Ryom-Verzeihnis, a standard catalog system of Vivaldi’s music by Peter Ryom) was relatively unknown until it was “rediscovered” in 1939. Since then, it has found much success and popularity, including features in the 1985 film Runaway Train, the 1996 Scot Hicks film Shine (about pianist David Helfgott) and the 2011 film The Hunter. Join us at 7:00 pm Sunday night, November 16, for this wonderful presentation.
First United Methodist Church is located at 420 S. Heartz, Coppell TX. For more information about FUMC Coppell call the church office at 972-462-0471 or fumccoppell.org.
