2004-2005 season

This three-concert season showcases the professional singing and diverse repertoire audiences have come to expect from the Cayuga Vocal Ensemble, bringing you our signature sound in performances of famous works, inspiring combinations of voices and orchestra, and new collaborations with other choirs from the Ithaca area.

In November, we present the thrilling perfection of Palestrina paired with works by contemporary composers inspired by the sounds of Renaissance polyphony. To illumine the gloom of February,we are pleased to be introducing a new all-Bach concert, featuring the famous Magnificat with orchestra and organ. In May, we will join our voices with those of several Ithaca area church choirs to perform Ralph Vaughan Williams's moving Dona Nobis Pacem -- a work that eloquently affirms the need for peace.

This season's concerts will take place in the newly renovated sanctuary of Ithaca's First Presbyterian Church, whose fine-tuned acoustics will provide the perfect home for our vocal sound.We hope you will join with us as we fill this lofty hall with harmonies new and old and make it ring with the exultant pairing of voices and instruments.
