The Duke Performances Vocal Ensemble Series presents the Eric Whitacre Singers on Tuesday, February 28 at 8:00 pm in Duke University Chapel on Duke’s campus.
“Eric Whitacre is a phenomenon in the music world,” wrote the Sydney Morning Herald, calling him “a composer of thoughtful and genuinely original choral works which are not only challenging and complex, but also hugely popular.” The Juilliard-trained composer and conductor has become a force in the choral genre. He has released chart-topping and GRAMMY-winning albums, toured the world with his all-star ensemble the Eric Whitacre Singers, and assembled the world’s first online virtual choir.
Whitacre brings his ensemble to Duke Chapel, the perfect acoustic match for his ethereal compositions. Fittingly, the program will include his Music for Sacred Spaces, a choral work that integrates solo cello with elements of electronic music. The program also features two transporting classics of his repertoire, Sleep and Lux Aurumque, both of which have become — thanks to their inclusion in Whitacre’s virtual choir project — worldwide choral classics.
