Tenebrae / Tenebrous

An announcement regarding event cancellations due to concerns of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

British vocal ensemble Tenebrae and contemporary string ensemble JACK Quartet remake the concert experience in a unique concert pairing shaped by light and the absence of it. In tenebrae, the award-winning choir, performing only by candlelight, brings moments of "intense serenity and celebratory robustness" (The New York Times) to Joby Talbot's arresting work, Path of Miracles.

In tenebrous, the audience is shut off from the light as the JACK Quartet explodes the perceptual experience with a performance in total darkness of Georg Friedrich Haas' ninth string quartet, an experience that begins as one of deprivation but "becomes one of radically heightened awareness" (Alex Ross, The New Yorker).
