We're incredibly proud and excited to announce that we will be featured as Classical MPR's Featured Choral Album of the Week! Lux now stands alongside other winners such as Voces8, Tenebrae, The Sixteen, Blue Heron, The Crossing, and more. Tune in at 12 pm EST (using the "Read More" button below) to listen to selections from our newest release Now Ye Heavenly Powers.
While we have had to say quite a few goodbyes this past week, we are ecstatic to welcome back soprano Eby Buscher from Urbania, Italy! As an artist in the Si Parla, Si Canta summer program, she took intensive Italian classes, studied Italian art song with elite vocal coaches, and performed opera scenes in recitals across Italy. We're excited for Eby to join us for the July portion of our season: she'll be singing with us on our recording project this month, and you can see her in our July 22 concert! Enjoy pictures below of her time in Italy.
Last weekend, we continued our goodbyes by watching as Hannah left town from her administrative internship at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. She enjoyed her time in the Nation's capital thoroughly, and hopes to come back in the near future. While she goes back to her home in New Jersey now, we can't wait to see her again for our concert in Gettysburg. Below you'll find a slideshow of a few pictures from her internship. Thanks for a wonderful season, and see you soon, Hannah!
Missed our Hyattsville, MD concert? Just want to relive the moments? We've got you covered! We've updated our Photos page, newly equipped with photos from our June 17 performance of A Journey of Life. Thank you again to all who attended, who supported us in every way, and who gave such wonderful compliments afterwards. We had a wonderful time, and we hope you did, too. Enjoy some scenes from the night here.
Friends, thank you all so much for the tremendous support we received at yesterday's concert; from the standing ovation to the compliments we received afterwards, to the excited buzz in the room. Whether you donated, bought our newest release, Now Ye Heavenly Powers, or simply came to enjoy the concert with us, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Enjoy some scenes (and mid-concert selfies!) from the night in the slideshow below!
If you couldn't make it to the concert, last night, but still want to support our future projects, please consider donating here! Want to see where our donors have taken us so far? Check out our newest album, Now Ye Heavenly Powers, here!
A few days ago, we posted on our social media that big news was coming soon, and now it's here! On June 17 (the day of our concert!), we'll be releasing our second album, Now Ye Heavenly Powers. Including some of our favorite recordings from the last two seasons, you'll be getting twice the music as our last release (and twice the rumbly notes, too!). First dibs go to our audience this Sunday, so be sure to mark your calendars and be there for the release, which feature some of this generation's most talented composers, and some classics from the choral repertoire you're sure to enjoy. See you Sunday!
Congratulations to Anthony Jones, who is leaving today for his summer program in Novafeltria, Italy. He'll be spending the majority of the summer studying and performing in this year's La Musica Lirica opera program. In Italy, he'll be performing the roles of Normanno in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor and the Secondo Commissioner from an Italian production of Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites. He's very eager to take this step forward as an artist.
