BREVE Lenten Concert
March 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Guest vocal artists, the Baton Rouge Early Vocal Ensemble (B.R.E.V.E.), will present an hour-long program of stunning vocal music accompanied by a chamber orchestra in Opelousas, Louisiana. B.R.E.V.E. is one of the few early music ensembles in the state of Louisiana. They are dedicated to the study and performance of lesser-known Renaissance and Baroque music.
At this event, their performance will pay homage to the practice of Lent, a Catholic tradition following Mardi Gras that prepares a person for Easter through various practices, including not eating red meat on Fridays and “giving up” a vice or luxury for the duration of the observance, which lasts 40 days.
B.R.E.V.E. will perform spiritual music appropriate to this season.
