    The de Angelis Vocal Ensemble was created in 2005 to enrich and broaden the Orange County arts community and within this short period of time has become one of the finest performing groups in Southern California. 

    Upcoming Concert

    56279_med_hr

    5-17-2014  8:00pm
    Modern Madrigal
    Mission Basilica
    San Juan Capistrano

    If you have not had the opportunity to experience one of our programs, you are missing out on a rare Orange County cultural experience.

    In addition to our small size and primary performance of a cappella [unaccompanied] repertoire, our concerts are programs of music that are unique to the smaller ensemble, allowing us to provide the community with a more eclectic and cutting edge presentation of choral music. The unique combination of the extraordinary setting at the Basilica at the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano and the splendid sound of this ensemble is one of Orange County's best kept secrets!

    So why should you attend a concert? de Angelis Vocal Ensemble is both choral transcendence and luminescence of which you will not experience at any other local performance. The de Angelis experience is one of beauty – pure, ecstatic, and rapturous - something to treasure and share.

    WELCOME

    Welcome to the ninth season of the de Angelis Vocal Ensemble!

    Our subscription season begins in October with Britten’s Britain. In this program we will experience the music of Great Britain, celebration coronation music for Elizabeth II and the centenary of contemporary England’s most loved composer, Benjamin Britten.

    In December, celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with our program Gift of the Magi, luxuriating in the splendor of both the East and the West.

    Join us in March for the London version of the Brahms Requiem. Most audiences are familiar with the orchestral version of this, but very few audiences have experienced the intimacy and clarity of the piano four-hands version.

    Our final program in May, Modern Madrigal, showcases contemporary American composers, highlighting the talents of Morten Lauridsen, Ross Lee Finey and the brilliant, yet virtually unknown Irvine Fine.

    Finally, we are very pleased to announce our educational outreach program - Music of New Spain: Exploring California’s Missions. This integrated program is crafted specially for Orange County fourth graders whose curriculum includes the study of California missions. This first year of events will include live performances, student lessons, lectures and teacher programs.

    Information regarding the purchase of season tickets can be found in the enclosed brochure. The interior page of the brochure has been perforated for your convenience. Simply split along the perforated edge and return your information with the enclosed envelope. Your commitment to live performances of world class choral music through the purchase of season tickets assures us our core audience and gives you four wonderful opportunities to hear de Angelis Vocal Ensemble in this, our eighth season.

    On behalf of the de Angelis Board of Directors we look forward to seeing you at our concerts this season!

    Sincerely,

    Matthew Gray

    Modern Madrigal

    Saturday | May 17, 2014 | 8:00pm

    A madrigal is a secular vocal music composition of the Renaissance and early Baroque eras. In the madrigal, the composer attempted to express the emotion contained in each line, and sometimes individual words, of a celebrated poem. Our Modern Madrigal program showcases the talents of contemporary American composers and their interpretations of this delightful choral form.
