Led by Artistic Director Matthew Culloton, The Singers are proud to announce their return to the renowned Ravinia Festival. This will mark the ensemble’s fourth performance at Ravinia since their debut there in 2013. “It is by far one of our biggest honors to be invited to again perform at the Ravinia Festival,” says Culloton. “To take part in one of the country’s most-respected music festivals is not something we take for granted.”
The Singers’ performance of Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil (Vespers, op. 37) will be part of an evening that honors the centennial of the birth of American choral champion Robert Shaw. Earlier in the evening, prior to The Singers’ performance, a new film on Shaw will be presented, highlighting the impact the maestro had on choral music across the world. Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil was recorded by Shaw and his choir, and the work’s lasting beauty held special meaning to him in his last years.
The Singers are currently in the midst of their 12th season, and have made a lasting impact on the choral scene through concerts, recordings, and special attention to the music of today’s composers.
