New York Polyphony is among today’s foremost vocal chamber ensembles, with a commitment to exploring the boundaries between ancient and modern music. The New York Times praised one of their two Grammy Award-nominated recordings as “a spacious, radiant treat.” Hear them live in an intimate, late-night “salon” setting in music from the 19th century forward, with works by Schubert, whose lovely part-songs could melt the heart, new music by contemporary British composer, Ivan Moody, whose vocal music was described by the Los Angeles Times as “like jeweled light flooding the space,” and more.
“Singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure.”
