RICCO Concert to pay tribute to Rhode Island Red Cross!

User News Image

The Rhode Island Red Cross is excited to be partnering with the Rhode Island Civic Chorale & Orchestra (RICCO), who will be featuring Benjamin Britten's Cantata Misericordium at their concerts on May 14th and 15th. This wonderful piece of music was composed specifically for the American Red Cross on September 1, 1963, and tells the captivating story of the Good Samaritan in Latin. RICCO will be performing it this year in honor of the RI Red Cross Centennial Celebration. For every advanced, senior, and regular priced ticket, $7 will be donated to the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign.  We hope that you will be able to come enjoy some beautiful music while also supporting the Red Cross. Historical panels from the Century of Service Traveling Exhibit will also be on display, so we hope you enjoy these one of a kind installations as well.
