Coming up next on VoiceBox -- Vocal Instrumentalists: On the art of combining instrumental and vocal chamber music
Sunday, May 1, 2011
Composers are increasingly asking vocal groups to accompany themselves on a variety of instruments. David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Little Match Girl Passion is a case in point. What about the other way around? Join the members of The Real Vocal Ensemble, a string quartet that specializes in singing while playing, and VoiceBox host Chloe Veltman for an exploration of how to combine these two distinct skills to make beautiful music.
The show airs on Friday, May 6, from 10-11pm at 91.7 FM. Or listen in anytime this week via KALW's on demand online local music player.
