Resounding Voices Choral Series: Vigilia

Resounding Voices is a new free choral series showcasing vocal traditions from around the world on Sunday afternoons, alternating with the Solo Series. Guest conductor Robert Whalen leads the talented Philadelphia Voices in this inaugural program featuring a complete performance of Finnish composer Einojuhani Rautavaara’s stunning Vigilia for a cappella choir. At once peaceful and awe-inspiring, Vigilia is a beautiful and apt beginning to the Resounding Voices Choral Series.
