On New Year's Eve, Ars Lyrica celebrates Venice and its carnival tradition with exotic music from the City of Masks. Sopranos Melissa Givens and Blair Doerge share the stage with violinist Yung-Hsiang Wang, baroque flautist Colin St. Martin and guitarist Richard Savino in a festive program of music from Monteverdi to Vivaldi. The annual holiday gala follows in the Sarofim Hall Grand Lobby — carnival masks encouraged.
