Lumen Christi Institute
Free with museum admission.
An acclaimed soundscape of sacred and devotional song developed for The Met Cloisters museum, this one-hour program brings medieval traditions to life with sounds of status quo and religious change in and around Jerusalem. The vocalists of local ensemble Schola Antiqua are joined by special guests Amro Helmy, oud, and soprano Nell Snaidas.
Schola Antiqua will also perform the same program on Saturday March 11 at St. Josaphat Parish.
Schola Antiqua of Chicago, Artist-in-Residence at the Lumen Christi Institute since 2008, is a professional vocal ensemble dedicated to western liturgical chant and polyphonic music before the year 1600. The ensemble is the 2012 winner of the Noah Greenberg Award, given by the American Musicological Society for outstanding contributions to historical performing practice.
