Experience ensemble viii

2023 - 2024 Concert series

Please Join Us for Our 2023-2024 Season! 

From Artistic Director Donald Meineke: “This season, Ensemble VIII continues to offer timeless music in three specially curated concerts throughout the program year. Entitled “From Age to Age,” the season focuses on three musical pillars in history that had broad-reaching and lasting influence on classical music: Palestrina’s Pope Marcelli Mass, The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge, and Mozart’s beloved Requiem in collaboration with Arts on Alexander. From the most intimate and ethereal sounds to full throttle vocal fireworks, this season will showcase Ensemble VIII’s expansive range of vocal capabilities and expertise in music spanning 500 years.”

Our final concert of the year will be:

This concert features Mozart’s popular Symphony No. 39 and his great choral masterpiece, Requiem.

Grappling with the mystery of death, Mozart willed his last creation into life with his final breaths.
