Description Cathedral Arts Live welcomes the ethereal sounds of choral ensemble Amuse Singers as they present Weather Reports Friday Feb. 23 at 7:00 p.m.
About the Performance
Come hail and high water, fog and rain, sunshine and storms – there are no umbrellas necessary for these dispatches. The performance includes works by Kocsar, Esenvalds, Mealor, Sled and Britt, as well as commissions by Catherine Dalton and Eleanor Aversa.
About the Performers
Amuse was founded by Lee Ryder in the fall of 2003 to bring music written for women’s voices to New York audiences. An often overlooked area of choral literature, this repertory comprises serious works by a wide variety of composers throughout the last twelve centuries.
Writing in the New York Times, Allan Kozinn said, “This choir’s real magic is in its delicate balance of serenity and intensity...a pure transparent tone and solid ensemble.”
In addition to its three-concert season, Amuse singers have participated in a wide variety of other programs and events including the US premiere of John Tavener’s The Veil of the Temple, the closing work of the Lincoln Center Festival. The ensemble sang the chants in a collaborative performance of François Couperin’s Messe pour les couvents with organist Renée Anne Louprette at St. Ignatius Loyola and that same year saw Amuse singers joining the Dessoff Symphonic Choir for performances of Britten’s War Requiem and Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Lorin Maazel for the maestro’s concluding two performances with the Philharmonic.
Amuse has also appeared twice on the Music on Madison series at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church and has toured to the Boston area under the baton of its first music director. The group was presented on the Serenade Concert series at the historic Christ Church on Staten Island and made its debut with the Oratorio Society of New York in a cameo role in Mendelssohn’s Paulus at Carnegie Hall with Kent Tritle conducting.
