Seriously sublime

Superbly disciplined and deeply expressive.
— John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

Join us for our next performance:


March 2019

This concert features the Vespers portion of Einojuhani Rautavaara's monumental Vigilia, first performed in 1971. Inspired by a childhood visit to an orthodox monastery, Rautavaara's composition conjures up dazzling visions of domes, clamoring bells, and icons, which he translates into music of raw, visceral intensity.

We are thrilled to feature bass soloist Daniel Fridley, who sang a striking Chicago debut last spring with the Newberry Consort. The balance of the program will feature shorter a cappella works by Gjeilo, Pärt, Runestad, and Kaumann.
