Cerddorion Vocal Ensemble

Cerddorion’s thoughts turn to love this spring!

Our twentieth season culminates in three exciting performances:


Rise Up, My Love:  Choral Settings of the Song of Songs

Music spanning five centuries inspired by the abiding, passionate love expressed in these timeless biblical texts.

The program features music of Melchior Franck, John Dunstable, Francisco Guerrero, William Billings, Edvard Grieg and Bengt Johansson, as well as the premiere of new works by Craig Bakalian and Francisco José Carbonell, winners of Cerddorion’s Third Annual Emerging Composers Competition.

Our Swedish Muse, featuring Voces Nordicae

Cerddorion collaborates with Voces Nordicae, one of Sweden’s outstanding professional choirs, in their only New York appearance in 2015.

Stockholm-based vocal ensemble Voces Nordicae, founded in 1999 by conductor Lone Larsen, combine the classical a cappella repertoire combined with folk and popular musical traditions, incorporating improvisation, instrumental elements and ethnic singing styles to offer a varied sound that gives a musical flow.

The ensemble’s goal is to convey the music through a strong stage presence. Voces Nordicae sing from memory in order connect more directly with their audience. The ensemble’s movements and use of the room allow the listener to feel like a part of the concert.
