Music <541> Presents: Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble

Hear the stellar Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble perform new works by Stanford graduate composers at the Elliot Program Center. The entrance to the concert space is accessed via the deck that overlooks Lake Lagunita. Please join us for the concert and stay after for refreshments on the deck while we listen to the frogs.
With the precision and flexibility of modern chamber musicians, Quince Contemporary Vocal Ensemble specializes in experimental repertoire that is changing the paradigm of contemporary vocal music.  Described as "a new force of vocal excellence and innovation" by The Brooklyn Rail, Quince continually pushes the boundaries of traditional vocal ensemble literature.
As dedicated advocates of new music, Quince regularly commissions new works, providing a wider exposure for the music of living composers, and supports the efforts of concert series and universities who strive to incorporate contemporary repertoire into their programming. Quince has recently been seen in Vicky Chow's Contagious Sounds Series, a.per.io.dic's John Cage Festival in Chicago, at the Philip Glass: Music with Friends benefit concert at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, and at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, NE.
Comprised of vocalists Elizabeth Pearse (soprano), Kayleigh Butcher (mezzo soprano), Amanda DeBoer Bartlett (soprano), and Carrie Henneman Shaw (soprano), Quince thrives on unique musical challenges and genre-bending contemporary repertoire.
