Saint Jerome by Leonardo Da Vinci

DaVinci at the River,” for orchestra, choir, and bass solo

Sunday, Dec. 5 | Leach Theatre or streamed via YouTube

The Missouri S&T choirs and symphony orchestra will be joined by members of the Rolla community choir to perform “DaVinci at the River,” a new cantata written for the university’s 150th anniversary celebration. Dr. Kyle Wernke, assistant teaching professor of music, composed the music and Taylor Gruenloh, assistant teaching professor of theatre, wrote the libretto. The role of da Vinci will be performed by John Francis.

The concert will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall, located at the corner of 10th and Main streets on the Missouri S&T campus. For those not able to attend in person, the concert will be available on YouTube. 

The synopsis of the cantata is that an ancient power conjures the ghost of Leonardo da Vinci and demands that a machine be built. The ghost of da Vinci has doubts about this machine and will languish for over a hundred years caught between innovation and purpose, forced to remember his great deeds and his unfinished promises in life.

Face coverings and maintaining proper social distancing are required at this event. For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 precautions on campus, check coronavirus.mst.edu.

Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door for the public and free to youth, ages 18 and under, and Missouri S&T students with a valid ID.
