British ensemble VOCES8 takes a cappella chamber singing to a new level. Called “impeccable” (Gramophone) and “slickest of the lot” (BBC Radio 3), the eight-voice ensemble performs everything from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary arrangements. Their broad reach has taken them to prestigious venues around the world, such as Royal Albert Hall, Cité de la Musique Paris, Tokyo Opera City, Shanghai Concert Hall and Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall.
At the heart of the Peace Center’s mission is a commitment to bringing people together to experience the highest quality artistic performances. The 2018-2019 Peace Chamber program offers a world-class chamber music concert series and invites audiences to dive deeper through FREE Musical Happy Hours, Chamber Peace Talks and master classes with visiting artists.
Now in its third year, Peace Chamber welcomes a new artist-in-residence, Dr. Igor Begelman. Begelman will serve as a musical guide to the season, helping audiences explore the five concerts in the series and expanding the knowledge of curious music-lovers and chamber music enthusiasts alike. In addition to the programs open to the public, Begelman will work with student music groups and visit schools to engage students and educators in music education programs.
The 2018-2019 Peace Chamber concert series welcomes musicians from around the world for unforgettable, intimate chamber performances in the Gunter Theatre.
Chamber Peace Talks
Begelman and select guest artists will host pre-concert talks that guide audiences through the performance they are about to hear, providing insight into the repertoire before the music even begins. Pre-concert talks offer something for everyone, from the experienced aficionado to the first-time concertgoer. Talks begin 45 minutes before the performance time and are FREE for all ticket holders.
