Angelus’ New York Concert to Benefit Behind the Scenes

PLSN Staff • News • May 10, 2010

NEW YORK – Indiana vocal group Angelus has announced it will donate all proceeds from its July 16, 2010 New York concert of sacred music to The ESTA Foundation's Behind the Scenes charity. Part of their summer tour to New York, the concert will take place at 1 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Church of St. Mary the Virgin at 145 West 46th Street. The ensemble of five young women from Mt. Vernon Senior High School in Mt. Vernon, Ind. performs almost exclusively a cappella, and features music ranging from medieval chant and polyphony to contemporary Irish choral music and the American Sacred Harp tradition. Angelus is dedicated to the performance of the sacred music of varied religious traditions and historical periods, and counts among its influences Irish choral ensemble Anuna and the American quartet Anonymous 4.

 

The ensemble is directed by Dana Taylor, co-chair of The ESTA Foundation's Media Development Committee, and will also perform at Christ and St. Stephen's Church at 122 West 69th Street on Thursday, July 15, 2010 at 8:00pm.

 

Doors will open at 12:40 p.m. for the benefit concert on July 16, with a suggested donation of $10.  Reservations are not required.
