Ars Nova Singers Live Stream
Boulder-based Ars Nova Singers has built a reputation on delivering impressive vocal performances across an incredibly diverse and challenging repertoire. They have an exquisite live-streamed event planned on March 20 at 7:30 p.m., featuring music inspired by the Spring Equinox and World Storytelling Day — from the stirring sounds of a boundary-breaking German mystic woman, to the first-ever polyphonic vocal work printed in the Western Hemisphere, to verdant vocal terrain from Mexico, England, Italy, and beyond. l Grammy-nominated tenor Nicholas Phan (Best Classical Solo Vocal Album of 2021, Clairières) and Ann Marie Morgan (viola da gamba) are also featured with virtual performances of three works.
RSVP at arsnovasingers.org for the live-stream event link. A $20 donation is requested.
