Special Reception & Talk: Celebrate our 2019-20 season with wine and light hors d’oeuvres, a special talk featuring Lionel Muenier, Artistic Director of Vox Luminis, followed by concert “The Bach Dynasty” by Gramophone award-winning Belgian ensemble Vox Luminis
Vox Luminis is an internationally acclaimed, Gramophone-winning Belgian early music ensemble. Comprised of ten singers and a few instrumentalists, including viola da gamba, lute, and the rarely heard baroque harp, Vox Luminis has been regaled for their "beautiful blend" (New York Times), "...high quality individual voices, exquisite tuning and clarity of sound" (Music World). London's The Times wrote that "the light comes instead from their manner of performance: winningly clear, perfectly balanced, yet with each member retaining an individual colour." "Vox Luminis might appear [dressed] black as night, but they're really a rainbow dancing." Their program at Saint Michael is entitled The Bach Dynasty. Showcasing music from one of the most talented and prolific musical families the world has ever known, it will conclude with selections from one of the greatest and most virtuosic collections of choral works, the motets by Johann Sebastian Bach. Bring your friends and savor some of the finest specialists in the world bringing to life music from a golden era!
The concert is free and open to the public. Tickets are necessary to ensure seating - get yours today!
