The Ensemble is a professional chamber vocal and instrumental ensemble dedicated to strengthening the cultural life of its community through innovative musical experiences. The Ensemble’s season closes with a concert of music written by living composers. Hildegard Triptych, Frank Ferko’s mystical setting of texts written by the Sibyl of the Rhine, and Ola Gjeilo’s Dark Night of the Soul both set medieval texts for strings, keyboard and singers. A cappella works by Arvo Pärt, Tarik O’Regan and Stephen Paulus in addition to Tarik O’Regan’s epic and masterful setting of a text by Edgar Allen Poe, The Ecstasies Above, round out the concert.
