Skylark Vocal Ensemble: Clear Voices in the Dark
Sat, April 29, 2017, 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM EDT
Nationally-acclaimed Skylark – an all-professional vocal ensemble known for its “sublimely beautiful” sound and innovative, inter-disciplinary programming – presents Clear Voices in the Dark, a musical pairing of Francis Poulenc’s 1943 masterpiece Figure Humaine and poignant songs from the American Civil War. Clear Voices in the Dark is a powerful cross-cultural statement about the expressive power of the arts, and specifically the human voice, in times of struggle. Figure Humaine has been described as a “high-wire act for choirs”, and because of its monumental difficulty, is rarely, if ever, performed – don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Poulenc’s masterpiece performed live.
