Anticipation and Celebration: Advent with the Montserrat Boy Choir, Tue 12/12 @ 3:00pm
Perched atop the mountains near Barcelona, the choir of the Benedictine Abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat is one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious boy choirs. For the first time in their 800-year history, the choir made its Midwest premiere, bringing with them a message of peace. The choristers will use music to transcend borders and speak directly to your heart.
In this special the ensemble sings a wide range of works. From Gregorian Chant to pieces by contemporary Spanish composer Bernat Vivancos (b.1972), the Monserrat Boy Choir sing with style and an attention to detail that is sure to enthrall listeners.
