The thrilling voices of two stars of American opera join a coalition of outstanding Boston-area choruses. Also on the program, the festive and lyrical music from one of Fellini’s greatest films “La Strada,” by Nino Rota—who later composed music for “The Godfather,” as well as musicians from the famous Honk! Festival of activist street bands. Rain date: August 6 at Hatch Shell
