A Mexican Convent Vespers

July 14 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

A Mexican Convent Vespers Concert


Our all-women vocal and instrumental ensemble is coming together this July for a recording project and we’re inviting YOU to preview that music at a special matinee concert on July 14th! (Concert will be 65 mins, no intermission)

“The Newberry Library’s Choirbooks from the Convent of the Encarnación continue to yield their riches, and the ravishing sounds of the Newberry Consort’s ensemble of female singers and instrumentalists will bring alive the gorgeous Vespers music of Juan de Lienas, the brilliant Mexican baroque composer.”

NO TICKETS NEEDED! FREE-WILL DONATIONS ENCOURAGED BUT NOT REQUIRED. Free-will donations will go toward covering rehearsal venue costs.

We can’t wait to share this music with you!
