Vocal Arts Ensemble of Ann Arbor will be in concert at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on Sunday, May 5 at 4 pm (doors open at 3:15 pm). Tickets are $10.
Founded in 1992 as a small chamber group, devoted to a cappella singing, the Vocal Arts Ensemble has solidified its reputation as one of the premier chamber ensembles in the region. VAE’s distinctive and versatile programming, collaborative spirit and thirst to commission and perform new works have helped this special chamber choir carve a unique niche in the Southeast Michigan area.
The luminous and numinous meet at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Detroit, where VAE will perform a diverse program of European Masters and American spiritual texts. Tallis, Pergolesi, Sweelinck, Purcell will join heavenly hands with Carol Barnett’s American Thanksgiving and other settings of the Sacred Harp. Our program will include Messaien’s haunting O Sacrum Convivium, as well as Steven Stucky’s Three Motets.
