About the event
An apocryphal story recounts that when conductor Nikolai Danilin first heard Sergei Rachmaninoff play the score for his All-Night Vigil (‘Vespers’), Danilin said “Where am I to get such basses? They are as rare as Asparagus at Christmas!" In the fall of 2019, three giants of the choral world will join Skylark to present the greatest masterwork of a cappella music as it has never been heard before: a performance of the finest professional vocalists in the United States anchored by three world-renowned basses joining forces for the first time ever. Indeed more rare than “asparagus at Christmas,” don’t miss this once-in-a-generation experience!
Skylark will welcome basso-profundos Eric Alatorre (a long-time member of Chanticleer), Adrian Peacock (renowned choral music producer and voice from the BBC Singers), and Glenn Miller (who performed as part of Robert Shaw's famous Vespers recording).
