Western Division Conference: Camerata Sine Nomine de Cuba
Date: January 18, 2014
During the 2014 Western Division Conference, ACDA will present . . .
CAMERATA SINE NOMINE DE CUBA
This internationally recognized professional ensemble performs a wide range of musical genres including traditional historical works, spirituals, and contemporary Cuban music. The focus of Camerata Vocale Sine Nomine is to embrace the Cuban public with choral repertoire that represents centuries of artistic choral performance. Founded in 2003 by its first director, Enrique Filiú O’Reilly, Camerata Vocale Sine Nomine has established itself as a premiere group in Cuba’s rich choral environment. Unique to this ensemble is the use of male voices singing as countertenors, the soprano and alto parts as well as the normal male tenor and bass parts. This relatively rare format is the basis for the interpretation from the earliest polyphony to the present. The current director, Leonor Suárez Dulzaides, has led the ensemble since 2008. A lengthy list of performances have been given since the group’s debut in the early music festival, “Esteban Salas de Musica Antigua,” in the main auditorium of Havana. While the group has performed abroad, this visit marks their debut tour to the United States.
The ACDA Western Division Conference will take place February 18-22, 2014, in Santa Barbara, California. You can register NOW.
