EMG Presents Seraphour
The Epiphany Music Guild will open its 17th season on Sunday, October 29 at 4:00 pm with a free community concert by professional vocal ensemble Seraphour. The all-female quartet will present a program called Spirit and Light, featuring music spanning centuries from the Renaissance to present day. Included will be works by renowned British composer John Taverner and contemporary Korean American composer Sungji Hong. Fanfare Magazine calls Seraphour’s music “meltingly beautiful,” and the a cappella program promises to offer a sublime window into the eternal and divine.
Seraphour’s vocalists are Melissa Birch, Emma Grace Roche, Dana Rouse, and Heidi Vass. Formed in response to the isolation of the Covid pandemic, Seraphour celebrates through music that which is true, beautiful and good. The quartet is dedicated to the preservation and proliferation of the sacred canon, highlighting unaccompanied classical sacred gems that celebrate the beauty of the female voice. Seraphour’s debut album, “Angele Dei,” was released in October 2021 and has been featured on classical radio stations and syndicated NPR and PBS programs across the country.
A “meet-and-greet” reception will follow the
performance. Admission is free; donations to the Epiphany Music Guild are
