Musica Viva of New York presents: Voices in Motion

Nathan Siler plays Shaman drum for Veljo Tormis’ “Curse Upon Iron”

For centuries performers and audiences have become accustomed to remain fixed in their seats during performances. This program shatters that concept with an innovative body of works that explore sound and space in dynamic ways. The sanctuary of All Souls will be a key element of this program as the accomplished singers of Musica Viva explore its acoustical limits. The result will be a not-to-be-missed haunting sonic experience.

The Lamb by John Tavener

Cantos Sagrados by James MacMillan
