A capella ensemble recalls Renaissance
PORTLAND – Renaissance Voices, the 21-voice a capella ensemble directed by Harold Stover, will present its spring concert, at 8 p.m., Saturday, May 9, at Immanuel Baptist Church in Portland. The program will feature works by Monteverdi, Orlando di Lasso, Felix Mendelssohn, Maurice Ravel, and New Englander Amy Beach.
“…Beautifully sung, lively and surprisingly earthy,” wrote Christopher Hyde in a review of a Renaissance Voices concert in the Portland Press Herald. The ensemble has been performing throughout Maine since 1994 and has sung live on Maine Public Radio. Harold Stover, an internationally known organist and distinguished composer, has conducted the group since 2000.
Admission is $15 at the door. Discount tickets, at $12, are available in advance at www.renaissancevoices.org, Starbird Music in Portland, and Books, Etc. in both Portland and Falmouth (by cash or check). Admission is free with a valid student ID. The audience is invited to a reception after the concert.
