North Star Vocal Artists is a high-caliber amateur, auditioned performance ensemble centered in the North Bay. We present “contemporary choral classics…and the best of the rest.”
North Star was created to fill a perceived need in the North Bay – a chamber choir focused on the wealth of beautiful choral music composed since 1980. Not wanting to completely limit the possibilities for programming, the “best of the rest” in our tag line allows for the appearance of gems from earlier in the 20th century, as well as the occasional work from previous eras.
Our 2015-16 season will present two concert sets.
“Spirited Light: Sacred Music for the New Millenium” October 30, November 1, 7 and 8, 2015
“Night Skies”, a choral consideration of various celestial bodies, including a piece for the North Star. May 6, 7 and 8, 2016. Here’s a sample of the piece on this week’s concert that is accompanied by tuned wine glasses. – YouTube link.
