Prometheus: An American Vocal Consort
Tuesday, July 26, 7:30 p.m.
As a special summer offering of the GREAT SPACES Music & Arts Series, Promenteus, an American vocal consort will present a program entitled Calls Us Home on Tuesday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. at Grace Cathedral. A freewill offering will be accepted.
The music for Calls Us Home celebrates the exceptional beauty and verve of unaccompanied choral music. Works by Palestrina, Lassus, Victoria, as well as sublime arrangements of stunning and rarely-heard American, Swedish, and Finnish folk music will appear on the program alongside modern and new musical settings by such noted contemporary composers as Lauridsen, Runestadt, Muhly, and Omiccioli.
Prometheus’ 10 members hail from regions across the United States. Each of them leading professional lives as soloists and chamber musicians, their collected experience brings a special breadth and depth to the ensemble, lending Prometheus a unique versatility and intimacy. According to St. Louis critics, Prometheus “…represents some of the finest choral chamber singing you’ll hear anywhere in the Midwest.”
Having operated under the direction of Artistic Director R. Paul Crabb, and Assistant Director Emily Edgington Andrews for 8 years, Prometheus now partners with the Choral Arts Alliance of Missouri (CAAM), joining as the permanent professional Artists-in-Residence. This summer’s tour will highlight all of the artistic assets the ensemble brings to the CAAM team, in a diverse and powerful musical program not to be missed.
