Areté Vocal Ensemble

Areté returns to the stage for its 13th season, which promises to be the most interesting and eclectic yet. The innovative professional ensemble of vocal artists will open this concert with a performance of Quarantine Madrigals (2020) by Indian American composer Reena Esmail.

Composed in response to COVID-19, Quarantine Madrigals is intended to trace the break from society, the descent into isolation, and the eventual return to one another experienced during the pandemic.

Also on the program is “Membra Jesu Nostri” (1680) by the Baroque master Dieterich Buxtehude. This virtuosic work for voices and strings, known as the first Lutheran oratorio, is a cycle of seven cantatas, each a meditation on a different part of Christ’s crucified body: feet, knees, hands, sides, breast, heart and face.

With uncompromising attention to musical detail and a passion for live performance, Areté provides a joyful, moving, educational and soul-nurturing experience. Wyant Morton will conduct.

Tickets are $20 at the door or $15 if purchased online in advance $10 for students with ID. For information and to purchase tickets, visit
