Music of the Spheres: The Ecstasies Above
Vox Nova Chamber Choir, a Midcoast-based ensemble dedicated to the creative exploration of modern and contemporary vocal music, will present a concert of contemporary choral music with the DaPonte String Quartet and other guest artists on January 18th, 2014, at 7:30pm and on January 19th at 3:00pm in Studzinski Recital Hall at Bowdoin College.
The Ecstasies Above, the title piece on the program, is an otherworldly and serenely expressive work set to the prodigious poem Israfel by Edgar Allan Poe. The program concludes with "Sunrise Mass", by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. They are available at Shermans in Freeport, Gulf of Maine Books in Brunswick and Now Youâ€™re Cooking! in Bath, and from choir members. Admission is free with Bowdoin I.D. and as always, students attend free of charge.
