Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble

Announcing our 29th Concert Season

CROSSROADS

To stand at a crossroads is an opportunity.

A chance to consider what’s behind, what lies ahead,

and to reaffirm the purposeful journey.

THE NAKED VOICE

CVAE begins a new season in glorious celebration of the unaccompanied, unamplified, unmasked human voice. In the vibrant acoustics of St. Mary’s Cathedral, we will tap the roots of our centuries-old choral heritage with the floor-to-ceiling resonance of Renaissance masterpieces by Thomas Tallis and Josquin des Prez. New works by living composers Elliot Cole, Andrew Balfour, and Reena Esmail will challenge singers and listeners alike to step beyond the familiar, finding fresh perspectives on the vitality of our art and its extraordinary ability to tell our collective story.

 

With special guest Pamela Chaddon, cello
