Seraphic Fire – West Coast Tour Concert

Seraphic-Fire
classical
Schoenberg Hall Watch Livestream

Two-time Grammy-nominated vocal ensemble Seraphic Fire performs in Schoenberg Hall as a part of their National ACDA Performance Tour. The Miami-based ensemble specializes in music before 1750 and after 1950. Joining them on this tour will be the American Brass Quintet featuring some of the best players from the American orchestral scene. Please join us for this one-time-only event.

Seraphic Fire, Florida’s GRAMMY® nominated vocal ensemble, brings together professional vocal and instrumental artists from around the country to perform repertoire ranging from Medieval chant and Baroque masterpieces, to Brahms and commissions by leading living composers. In 2012, two of the ensemble’s recordings, Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem and A Seraphic Fire Christmas, were nominated for GRAMMY® Awards. Since 2002, Seraphic Fire has put its South Florida home at the center of artistic innovation. The 2018-2019 Season celebrates cultural diversity through collaborations with fellow Aspen Music Festival resident American Brass Quintet for Renaissance music of Spain under Founder & Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, with 2013 National Arts and Humanities Presidential Award recipient Anthony Trecek-King for an exploration of the African-American experience, and with National Chorus of Korea Artistic Director E. J. Yoon in a journey that showcases gems of Korea’s choral tradition. Recognized for its “spellbinding, hypnotic” sound (South Florida Classical Review), Seraphic Fire’s artistic accomplishments also have translated to acclaimed partnerships with The Cleveland Orchestra, New World Symphony, and The Sebastians. At the forefront of Seraphic Fire’s mission is a commitment to community well-being and musician advancement through educational programs for South Florida’s underserved elementary students, as well as rising music professionals at University of Miami, Florida International University, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, and the Aspen Music Festival and School.

Made possible by the David and Irmgard Dobrow Fund. Classical music was a passion of the Dobrows, who established a generous endowment at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music to make programs like this possible. We are proud to celebrate this program as part of the 2018-2019 Dobrow Series.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
