Future Concerts

Fauré’s Requiem – Postponed until 2021

Due to COVID-19, Divisi has postponed all concerts until further notice. Due to how we planned the rest of the year, this concert is likely to fall in 2021 at a similar time of year. We can’t wait to see you there.

In 2020 2021 Divisi will perform its first large scale work for Solo Baritone, Soprano, SATB chorus and Organ. Featuring our very own Baritone Bailey Montgomerie, Soprano Julia Krivoshev, and Conducted by Alex Gorbatov, we hope to encapsulate the very “human feeling of faith in eternal rest” which Fauré sought to recreate in this work.

Joby Talbot – Path of Miracles – Postponed until December

Divisi and Candlelight Vox join forces under the baton of Grace Gallur to perform Talbot’s four-movement epic Path of Miracles. The work was commissioned for Tenebrae and chronicles the physical, emotional, and physical transformations of the Camino de Santiago. The works four stages chronicle the languages and experiences of the pilgrimage and pay homage to the difficulty and pious nature of the work.

La Nuova Musica – October 2020

In this concert we contrast Nuova Musica (new music) with La Nuova Music, a style of music dominated by Montiverdi and Gesualdo. We will tackle this difficult repertoire with a group of 6 expert singers, just as it would have been done in 1600s Italy.

This showcase recital in Wyselaskie Auditorium featured a selection of choral masterpieces by Arvo Pärt, Franz Biebl, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, and a contemporary arrangement of Waltzing Matilda by Ruth McCall.
