  • The King's Singers - SOLD OUT!
    Feb. 24th, 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM
    Gore Recital Hall

    ​The world-renowned vocal ensemble The King’s Singers will make their Master Players debut during their historic tour of North America celebrating their 50th Golden anniversary. Originally formed in 1968, The King’s Singers were founded by six recently-graduated choral scholars from King’s College in Cambridge. Their vocal line-up was (by chance) two countertenors, a tenor, two baritones and a bass, and the group has never wavered from this formation since. This year, The King's Singers are presenting their 50th anniversary season, GOLD, celebrating the amazing musical heritage of the group and looking into the bright future of vocal music.

  • River of Freedom
    Mar. 16th, 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM
    Gore Recital Hall

    ​River of Freedom is an arts-integrated work written for narrator, solo voice and chamber ensemble. The piece brings history to life through words by Caitlyn Kamminga, music by Adam Walters and art by Che Lovelace. This is a 200-year-old tale of the journey of the enslaved African-Americans who fought with the British in America’s Second War of Independence of 1812 in exchange for freedom and land in Trinidad. The work will be performed by Ibis Ensemble, a group founded by and made up of members of the music faculty of the University of Trinidad and Tobago. Learn more
