Yale Consort will present a series of Choral Evensong services in New Haven beginning on Tuesday, February 6 at 5:15 p.m. at Christ Church. Services will also be offered on February 20, March 5 and 26, and April 16 and 26. View full details.

Yale Consort is a newly formed professional vocal ensemble conducted by Professor James O’Donnell and sponsored by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. It provides high quality choral music through a series of evening services in local parishes and chapels. The centuries-old tradition of Choral Evensong encourages quiet contemplation through hymns, psalms, canticles, prayer, and reflection. All are very welcome.

James O’Donnell is professor in the practice of organ and sacred music at the Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. Prior to coming to Yale, he was the organist and master of the choristers at Westminster Abbey for twenty-three years.
