Free Choral Ensemble Performance feat. Remington Musicians, April 1

The Bridge Ensemble Announces Light City Festival Performance

Baltimore-based choral ensemble The Bridge Ensemble is pleased to announce its participation in the inaugural Light City Festival on April 1. Audiences will have a unique opportunity to experience some of today’s most brilliant and cutting-edge choral music while enjoying stunning light installations on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Only in its second season, The Bridge Ensemble devotes itself to exploring the connections between contemporary and ancient vocal music. Artistic director Gilbert Spencer will lead the 16-voice ensemble in music of Joby Talbot, Thomas Tallis, William Byrd, and Vytautas Miniskis, as well as presenting the world premieres of two Baltimore composers, Michael Rickelton and Joshua Bornfield. The Bridge Ensemble will collaborate with sought-after lighting designer Brett Angstadt to create a multi-media experience that contemplates our relationship with light throughout history.

Josh Bornfield, Katie Chen, Sara Woodward and Gilbert Spencer are all local to Remington.
Admission to the festival and the performance is free, and is presented through the generosity of the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts. More information is available at bridgeensemble.org and lightcity.org.

April 1, 7pm
Harbor East Stage (1000 Lancaster St.)
