Rose Ensemble concert set for September 11
The Rose Ensemble will perform “Land of Three Faiths: Voices of Ancient Mediterranean Jews, Christians, and Muslims” at Transylvania Wednesday, September 11, at 7:30 p.m. in Haggin Auditorium as part of the Dorothy J. and Fred K. Smith Concert Series.
The Rose Ensemble performs rarely heard historical music—both sacred and secular—from around the globe.
They received the 2005 Chorus America Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence and won first prize in both sacred and secular music categories at the 2012 Tolosa Choral Contest in Spain (part of the European Choral Grand Prix). They can be heard regularly on American Public Media and National Public Radio.
The Smith Concert Series has brought a variety of musicians to campus, including the Kronos Quartet, Chanticleer, and Tiempo Libre. The concerts are free and open to the public.
