Behold, all things are become new: A Choral Exploration of Love, Death and the Divine
The New England Conservatory Chamber Singers, under the direction of Erica Washburn, Director of Choral Activities, embark on a three city tour of the Mid-Atlantic this spring. Perfectly placed during the Lenten season, the tour program offers an opportunity to hear works that deeply explore the universal themes of Love, Death and the Divine.
For those living in New England, your chance to hear the Chamber Singers, and the NEC Concert Choir, will be at their March 7, 2013 collaborative performance with the NEC Wind Ensemble of Honegger’s King David at the Church of the Covenant in downtown Boston at 8:00pm, or, the choirs' combined final performance at NEC’s Jordan Hall on Monday, April 29 at 8:00pm.
The Chamber Singers will be chronicling their preparations for the tour through their new blog Facing Front. Follow them online and see them live!
