Blue Heron presents a master class for students in the Vocal Studies Program and the Motet Choir.
Founded in 1999, Blue Heron is a 21st-century vocal ensemble that mostly sings music composed between 1400 and 1600. The ensemble’s expansive repertoire includes 15th-century English and Franco-Flemish polyphony, Spanish music between 1500 and 1600, and neglected early 16th-century English music. Blue Heron also regularly performs earlier and later music, from a concert version of Guillaume de Machaut’s Remede de Fortune to a collaboration with A Far Cry featuring Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem, Le Cantique des Cantiques for twelve voices by Jean-Yves Daniel-Lesur (1952), Devran (2017) by Boston’s Mehmet Ali Sanlıkol, and a new setting of Puer nobis nascitur by Chicago’s Kevin Allen, commissioned by the ensemble in 2020.
Free and open to the public.
