Join us to celebrate our 5th anniversary season with three exciting new concert programs, including our first-ever collaborative project with other local choirs.
The Elements of Song: From Sea to Sky
The program celebrates music referencing the four classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. All creation draws upon these basic elements, and our physical connection to music grounds us in shared creativity. From a sensual tango by harpist Loreena McKennitt to a gentle madrigal by Claudio Monteverdi to a fiercely wintry setting of Shakespeare’s “Blow, blow, thou winter wind,” each piece brings us closer to the art inherent in the physical world.

40 Voices Singing: Masterworks for Massed Choirs
a collaboration with The Laughing Bird and PhilHarmonia
Do you love supporting Philadelphia musicians? Do you love great music? Then this is the concert for you: join us as we partner with two of our favorite fellow ensembles, The Laughing Bird and PhilHarmonia, to sing some of the best and most exciting music written for large choirs. The program will spotlight Thomas Tallis’ famed “Spem in alium,” better known as the 40-Voice Motet, and other masterworks by early and modern composers. These concerts are made possible with support from the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, PECO, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the Puffin Foundation.

As Birds Do Sing: A 5th Anniversary Concert
To bring our anniversary season to a close, we’ll return to our roots–literally and figuratively–with a springtime concert celebrating the natural world. In homage to the wren on our logo, music about birds and nature was one of our earliest and longest-running themes. We’ll celebrate five years of singing by bringing some of our old favorites out of the vault and sharing our new endeavors.
