Zephyr sings Pärt, Brahms, Lauridsen - Dec. 8th - Newton, NJ
Date: November 18, 2012
Location: New Jersey, USA
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
Zephyr Vocal Ensemble, an a cappella ensemble performing regionally in the NYC metropolitan/Tri-State area, brings a concert experience of the sacred in music with O magnum mysterium with a focus upon the mystery of the Incarnation.
Zephyr typically sings 1/2 concert of classical/traditional music, and 1/2 concert of lighter music. Light choreography and movement added as appropriate; all is from memory and without a conductor to foster intimacy between artists and audience. Zephyr concerts are stirring, educational, and entertaining!
