The closing program of the 2016 Summer Festival reprises Sergei Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil. Last performed by the Desert Chorale in 2012, the “Vespers” will feature an enlarged 32-voice ensemble. Music Director Joshua Habermann describes Rachmaninov’s masterwork as “[one of] the greatest, major a cappella (without accompaniment) choral works.”
