Southwestern Division Conference: New York Polyphony
Date: February 7, 2014
During the 2014 Southwestern Division Conference, ACDA will present . . .
NEW YORK POLYPHONY
New York Polyphony is regarded as one of the finest vocal chamber ensembles in the world. The four men “sing with intelligence, subtlety and consummate artistry,” (Richmond Times-Dispatch) applying a distinctly modern touch to repertoire that ranges from austere medieval melodies to cuttingedge contemporary compositions. Their dedication to innovative programming, as well as a focus on rare and rediscovered works, has not only earned New York Polyphony critical acclaim and a devoted following but helped to move early music into the classical mainstream. New York Polyphony’s debut album, I sing the birth, was released in 2007. New York Polyphony’s second album, Tudor City, spent three weeks in the top ten of Billboard’s classical album chart. New York Polyphony released its third album, endBeginning, on BIS Records in early 2012. It was selected as one of the top ten notable classical music recordings of 2012 by the New Yorker. New York Polyphony released its fourth album, Times go by Turns, which features Masses by Thomas Tallis and William Byrd, as well as an enigmatic three-voice Mass setting by medieval English composer John Plummer.
The ACDA Southwestern Division Conference will take place March 19-22, 2014, in Little Rock, Arkansas. You can register NOW.
