Widely regarded as one of the finest professional choral music ensembles in the United States, the Antioch Chamber Ensemble is currently celebrating its 15th season of exceptional music making. Under the leadership of founding artistic director, Joshua Copeland, the ensemble strives to present as diverse a program as possible of the world's greatest choral literature, both sacred and secular, and has performed works ranging from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary masterpieces with a core group of ten to twelve of the New York metropolitan area's finest singers. In 2008, Antioch was awarded first place honors in the highly prestigious Tolosa International Choral Competition in Spain, establishing them among the top rank of professional choirs in the world. In recent seasons, Antioch has been called "stellar," "flawless," "an exceptional group," and "a spectacular example of what a classical choir should sound like" by the national press. Antioch will be performing choral works by Eric Whitacre, Paul Mealor and Matthew Brown.
This event is open to the public.
