Lux in the News!
Our friends at Chorus Connection wrote a wonderful article about Lux, our origins, who we are, and the nuts and bolts of how we work as an ensemble! Tori Cook, their Director of Marketing, discovered Lux online and contacted our director, Robby Napoli, to interview him for an article, which you can read by pressing the button below! Many thanks to Tori and the rest of her colleagues at Chorus Connection!
Congratulations are in order for alto Anya Trudeau, who in her first semester on campus, successfully auditioned for and was placed in University of Maryland's top choral ensemble, the UMD Chamber Singers, joining other Lux members John-Paul Teti and Collin Power. The UMD Chamber Singers have achieved international renown with acclaimed performances of the most challenging repertoire ranging from the 16th through the 21st centuries. In addition to regularly singing under founding director Edward Maclary, the Chamber Singers work with internationally renowned conductors such as Christoph Eschenbach, Helmuth Rilling, Rinaldo Alessandrini, and Iván Fischer. Congrats, Anya!
A World Premiere!
Baritone Collin Power is very excited to be singing the role of Boaz in César Franck's oratorio, Ruth. On September 15, Collin will perform, along with some other fantastic musicians, at Glenelg Country School in Ellicott City, MD. Inspired by the themes and events of the biblical story, profits from this event will be donated to the International Rescue Committee to support their humanitarian efforts with refugees. In lieu of tickets there is a $15 suggested donation. For more information, click the button below!
