Carson Chamber Singers, a 50 person chorus directed by Richard Hutton, performs the a cappella masterwork, All-Night Vigil by Sergei Rachmaninoff in two beautiful venues: St. Thomas Aquinas Cathedral (310 W. 2nd Street, Reno) on Saturday Nov. 6th at 7:00 p.m., and St. Mary in the Mountains (111 E Street, Virginia City) on Sunday November 7th at 4:00 p.m. The concert is 60 minutes without intermission.
Hutton said, “All-Night Vigil, commonly known as ‘Vespers,’ is a work that the singers are excited to perform. The chant-based music is gorgeous.”
