Calmus Ensemble in Castlebar
9, Apr 2011 - 00:20
CLASSICAL VOCAL Monday 11th April @ 8.00pm
For over ten years the remarkable Calmus Ensemble has wowed audiences with its unique style of a capella singing, blending five scintillating and soulful voices - four male and one female - in a clear-voiced, perfectly balanced ensemble. Originally formed by five graduates of the St. Thomas Boys‘ Choir, Leipzig, the group added the glittering soprano voice of Anja Lipfert in 2001 in order to expand their repertoire, which now encompasses everything from Gregorian chants, Irish airs, jazz and folk songs to the music of Palestrina, Bach and Debussy. Acclaimed for its flawless intonation and extraordinary harmonic amalgam, this award-winning ensemble has toured extensively in Europe, North and South America and performed alongside the likes of the King's Singers and the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet. Part of a Music Network tour.
