Guest Concert: VOCES8 Presents “Underneath the Stars”

Oct 8, 8:00 p.m.

Skinner Hall of Music

We are thrilled to welcome internationally renowned choral ensemble VOCES8 to Skinner Hall. This wide-ranging recital connects natural and spiritual regeneration, recognizing loss, beauty, love, and joy. Music from the Renaissance to the present day comes from England (Byrd, Britten, Gibbons, and Smith), Germany (Schütz and Rheinberger), Scandinavia, and Iceland (Alfvén and Sigurbjörnsson), as well as the USA (Kevin Allen) and jazz standard arrangements. The concert takes its title from the modern folk song “Underneath the Stars” by Kate Rusby, arranged for VOCES8’s debut album on Decca Classics in 2013.

This concert is free and open to the public.
