Vocal Arts Ensemble Ann Arbor
May 5 | 4:00 pm$10
Founded in 1992 as a small chamber group devoted to a cappella singing, the Vocal Arts Ensemble has solidified its reputation as one of the premier chamber ensembles in the region. VAE’s distinctive and versatile programming, collaborative spirit and thirst to commission and perform new works have helped this special chamber choir carve a unique niche in the southeast Michigan concert scene.
This concert will feature a diverse program of European Masters and American spiritual texts. Tallis, Pergolesi, Sweelinck, Purcell will join heavenly hands with Carol Barnett’s American Thanksgiving and other settings of the Sacred Harp. The program will include Messaien’s haunting O Sacrum Convivium, as well as Steven Stucky’s Three Motets.
An admission donation of $10 is requested. Tickets are available at this link.
Doors open 45 minutes before the concert. Free, secure parking is adjacent to the Cathedral.
