We finished our opening concerts of the season on a high note (pun intended).  Performing Joby Talbot's Santiago (the fourth movement of Path of Miracles) was particularly satisfying and well received.  If you missed it, you may get another chance to hear it.  It went so well that Richard is threatening to perform the entire Path of Miracles in a future concert series.

We're now preparing for our next concerts in December, and we're trying something new.  As an outreach and educational experience, we're inviting interested high school singers to join us performing Shawn Kirchner's Beautiful Star of Bethlehem at either of the concerts on December 16th and 17th.  More details are available here.

Other repertoire for the December concerts is listed on our Upcoming Performances page.

Since reconvening at the end of August, we have been preparing for our opening concert of the 2017-18 season.

We welcomed some wonderful new singers over the summer, and the group is sounding better than ever. Our opening program of the season, entitled "Pilgrimage," is one of our boldest and most challenging ever. Anchoring the program is the last movement of Joby Talbot's thrilling Path of Miracles--an a cappella tour de force that we cannot wait to sing for you. We're also excited to be partnering with composer-cellist Andrea Casarrubios for the American premiere of her piece "Caminante," for cello and chorus, and we look forward to recording the work for future release. We're also very pleased to be inaugurating a new concert venue (and concert time) this year--Saturday evenings at 8 at the beautiful Church of the Holy Cross in Dunn Loring. Our 4 PM Sunday programs will continue to take place at the Church of the Holy Comforter in Vienna. Join us at either venue (or both!), and make sure that these dates are on your calendars--you do not want to miss this program.

Our final concerts of the season are this weekend and will be followed by a reception to celebrate the release of our new CD. 

Please join us for performances of The Gentle Place of the Ancient Heart on Friday, May 5th, and Sunday, May 7th. As a bonus, receptions will be held after both concerts, and our new CD, ENCOUNTER: A Portrait of Voce will be available for the first time.  Although the CD will eventually be available for purchase here on the web site, we encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to get a copy at one of the concerts.
