If you’re looking for a truly unique classical music experience, don’t miss the Music of the Baroque‘s performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers of the Blessed Virgin. Originally written as part of the Catholic Church’s daily prayers, Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers has been described as one of the most ambitious works of religious music before Bach. This early Baroque masterpiece is rarely performed, so classical music fans should buy their tickets now for this 90 minute long musical performance. Tickets start at $27, and the first performance is at the beautiful and historic St Michael’s church in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood, while the other two performances will be held north of the city at Northbrook’s Divine Word Church.
