We're throwing a 450th birthday party for William Shakespeare and his friends! Join us and a few actors for a choral and dramatic tribute to his genius. We will present the very best from this rich trove of inspiring, moving, and witty plays and poetry. Works from the 16th century to the present by Morley, Vaughan Williams, Harris, Shearing, Chihara, Zaimont, and others.|

The ensemble cultivates innovative collaborations and has performed with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, The Alexander String Quartet, Veretski Pass, Composers Inc., and The Whole Noyse.
