The Esoterics continues its season of “choral ecologies” with SYLVANA: Music of the forests, flowers, and trees. SYLVANA is a concert of music that draws its theme from our green world: stories and tales from the woods, our contemplation of trees, and the flowers we admire for their beauty and fragrance. We even imagine a day in the majestic northern forests, complete with jagged peaks and… mosquitoes! Read More or Purchase Tickets.
The Esoterics announces its international call for a cappella choral scores for its annual competition for choral composition, POLYPHONOS, from the Greek πολυφωνος, “having many voices” or “manifold in expression.” The purpose of The Esoterics’ POLYPHONOS competition is to encourage today’s choral composers to broaden the scope of the a cappella repertory, by setting texts from beyond the Western classical canon. New this year: NO ENTRANCE FEE! For more information and application materials click HERE.
