Musings from the Artistic Director

The a cappella program

In recent years St. Martin’s Chamber Choir has been blessed to collaborate with some of the region’s finest ensembles and artists. Earlier this year, we have added a new tool to our kit – the Festival Singers. We have branched out into many different kinds of performance opportunities. This is all as it should be for a thriving ensemble.

But sometimes a handful of our oldest fans and supporters hint that they wish there was more a cappella music – the kind of music that we built our reputation on 20-some years ago; the kind of concerts of exquisite choral music that feature the choir . . . and nothing else. Well, for those people Winter Winds will be your kind of concert: An eclectic mix of composers and pieces, all a cappella, all exquisitely crafted harmonies, clever text-painting, spanning the gamut from reflective to playful, from remembrance to anticipation, from melancholy to joyous. Refer to either of the two previous Weeklys for a complete list of the pieces.
