The Eric Whitacre Singers (dir. Eric Whitacre)
Eric Whitacre will conduct his professional choir, the Eric Whitacre Singers, in a programme including recent works such as ‘Alleluia’ and ‘The City and the Sea’ as well as some of the much-loved greats of his catalogue, ‘When David Heard, ‘A Boy and a Girl’ and ‘Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine’. Other composers featured include Lauridsen, Monteverdi and Bach.
This exceptional team of artists won a Grammy award in 2012 for ‘Best Choral Performance’ for their debut album on Decca, ‘Light & Gold’. Reaping unanimous five star reviews, The Independent remarked: “it is grateful to sing, scrumptious to listen to, and rejoices in those ecstatic harmonic suspensions that turn dissonance into consonance and make something highly seductive of the thoroughly chaste”, while Gramophone added: “[Eric] obtains the best possible blend from his eponymous Singers. Their collective intonation is stunning, and they sing with conviction and enjoyment.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear 28 of the finest singers come together under the baton of Eric Whitacre in a remarkable evening of choral music.
