On Sunday, March 15 at 4:00 p.m., the Christ Church Concert Series will present one of the finest choral ensembles from the nation’s capital, The District Eight.
Acclaimed by The Washington Post for its “fine singers who blend and balance” and its “consistently beautiful performances,” The District Eight brings a lucid and colorful sound to a wide and fascinating repertoire, ranging from renaissance polyphony and English church anthems to modern American compositions and contemporary spirituals.Their sensitive and evocative interpretations of choral music have captivated audiences since 2010, “because of their exotic inscrutability…”
The District Eight has appeared at the Washington Early Music Festival, with the Norfolk Chamber Consort, The College of William and Mary, and the University of Tampa; as well as at St. James Methodist Church, Greenville, NC, St. John’s Cathedral in Jacksonville, Christ Church in Bradenton, Sarasota, FL, and St. Mary Mother of God in Washington, DC. In 2010 the ensemble joined forces with The Orchestra of the Seventeenth Century to present the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610.
Sunday’s concert will be held at the Academy Art Museum due to ongoing renovations to Christ Church. The museum is located at 106 South Street in Easton. A freewill offering will be received. The Christ Church Concert Series is supported in part by the Talbot County Arts Council and the Maryland State Arts Councils.
