LA FOLLIA PRESENTS
The Ospedale della Pietà
October 30 & 31, 2021 | Redeemer Presbyterian Church
The Ospedale was an institution for orphans and abandoned girls (often of noble parentage), many of whom remained at the Ospedale for life. By the 18th century, it became internationally famous for its all-female musical ensemble and chorus.
La Follia performs the music of Antonio Vivaldi, who directed and composed music for the Ospedale for many years . In keeping with the spirit of the venue, the concert will feature an ALL FEMALE cast!
