    STEUBENVILLE, OH—Franciscan University of Steubenville’s Sacred Music Program is hosting a concert featuring mezzo-soprano Misty Bermudez. The concert will be held on Sunday, March 3, at 3:00 p.m. at St. Peter’s Church in Steubenville.

    The program consists of Baroque music of the 17th and 18th centuries, including works of Bach, Vivaldi, and Monteverdi.

    Bermudez, a founding and current member of the Grammy-nominated vocal ensemble, Seraphic Fire, has captivated audiences with her “ravishing” voice and her “compelling concert performances,” according to reviewers of her performances. Her recent performances include Handel’s Messiah and Dido and Aeneas with Seraphic Fire and Firebird Orchestra.

    Bermudez will be accompanied by Marina Nielsen on baroque cello and Dr. Paul Weber, Franciscan University associate professor of music, on organ and harpsichord. The concert is free and open to the public.
