Third season of Chamber Music Series
Presented in partnership with San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music and Classical Revolution
Classical and contemporary chamber music involves a wide variety of instrumental groupings: from string quartets and Pierrot ensembles to duos, trios, and more. This variety is particularly apparent in chamber music that includes the voice, with no clear dominance by a single ensemble configuration, save duos with piano. Vocal chamber music can thus be more difficult to prepare and perform, since a new ensemble must be created for every new configuration.
Yet there is a vast repertoire of ensemble pieces featuring the voice by both classical and contemporary composers. These pieces deserve to be heard more frequently, and audiences tend to respond positively to music featuring the voice. To alleviate the practical problems associated with performing this repertoire, Vocallective brings together a roster of exceptional singers and instrumentalists who share a passion for vocal chamber music. Led by founders Indre Viskontas and Shannon Wolfe, the collective organizes and curates concert programs both inside the concert hall and in unconventional spaces with the goal of presenting vocal chamber music at the highest artistic level and reaching the widest possible audience.
