Choir type: Professional Choirs
Peregrine Vocal Ensemble presents "Departures: the Path Appears" on Friday, May 3 at 7:30pm. The ensemble, under the direction of Emilie Amrein, previews its inaugural season with a varied and expressive concert program of contemporary repertoire from around the world. Travel with us as we take a pilgrimage along a portion of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain and as we navigate the turbulent emotional terrain of mortality and loss.
Peregrine Vocal Ensemble tells stories through choral music in imaginative performances that engage audiences and connect communities. This twenty-voice ensemble was founded on the core belief that we can better navigate cultural difference, reconcile conflict, and inspire empathy through narrative-based artistic expression. Peregrine concert programs feature the thoughtful juxtaposition of historic and contemporary repertoire for the human voice. The ensemble is comprised of professional choral singers from the Chicago area who have a deep commitment to narrative-based programming. Rehearsals are collaborative, with individual singers often contributing interpretive ideas to the repertoire and presentation.
