Yale Voxtet

November 23, 2015

This year’s Voxtet members have been busy right from the first day. In addition to singing the Bach masses with Masaaki Suzuki and Schola and Juilliard, they recently spent a weekend in Norfolk, Connecticut, as guests of David Low. There they worked on continuo repertoire with baroque cellist Phoebe Carrai. We faculty gave a recital for them, cooked them dinner, went for a hike, and then we sang a concert in the converted barn, all part of a memorable weekend in the beautiful New England autumn.

Previously, the soprano Emma Kirkby and lutenist Jakob Lindberg had spent a week in residence with the Voxtet, culminating in a Renaissance party and performance with lute accompaniment.
