NEC Chamber Singers + Erica J. Washburn
: Path of Miracles

NEC: Jordan Hall | Directions

290 Huntington Ave.
Boston, MA
United States

Inspired by the 9th century Roman Catholic Camino de Santiago, Joby Talbot's Path of Miracles explores the walk of a pilgrim through four major staging posts on the Camino Francés. Those who have tread the path claim their life is forever changed by the journey. In homage to those who came before, and in recognition of the challenges the global community has faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chamber Singers offer this performance to all seeking comfort, contemplation, and courage. "We have walked out of the lives we had and will return to nothing, if we live, changed by the journey, face and soul alike." –Robert Dickinson, librettist

This performance is open to in-person audiences, and can also be viewed below via livestream.

    NEC Chamber Singers

    The NEC Chamber Singers is an auditioned ensemble, open to all majors at NEC, of 24-32 musicians who perform challenging works from all style periods, with a particular emphasis on 19th-21st century a cappella works. The choir rehearses three times a week and experiences choral music-making in an intimate ensemble setting, typically in the round. Each NEC Chamber Singer is a musician seeking to understand the principles and nuance of superior choral artistry so that they may be prepared for professional opportunities and expectations outside of the Conservatory. The choristers diligently prepare their music outside of scheduled rehearsals which makes the brief time spent together musically invaluable. The ensemble typically performs eight to ten times each academic year: on campus in the Conservatory’s Jordan Hall and at off campus venues in and around greater Boston.
