Erik Peterson, Artistic Director
Rocky Ridge Music Center is pleased to announce the appointment of Erik Peterson as Artistic Director of Solisti Rossi, a new youth chamber orchestra based on Antonio Vivaldi’s music ensemble of the Ospedale della Pietà of the eighteenth century. Vivaldi, nicknamed il Prete Rosso, ‘The Red Priest,’ wrote many of his 500 concertos for the all-female musicians of the Pietà, the figlie di coro. The choice of the title, Solisti Rossi or ‘Red Soloists,’ gives a nod to not only the color of Vivaldi’s hair but also to the reddish color of the Colorado River, the word ‘Colorado’ meaning ‘colored red.’
