    Eric Whitacre Singers at Boston's Symphony Hall

    Eric Whitacre Singers Debut US Tour Comes to Boston

    GRAMMY-Award Winning Ensemble to Appear at Boston’s Symphony Hall on March 19

    Visionary composer and conductor Eric Whitacre and the Eric Whitacre Singers – winners of the 2012 Grammy for Best Choral Performance for their Decca debut album Light & Gold – will embark on a four-city US tour this March, marking the first American appearances for the American Whitacre’s UK-based namesake ensemble. The tour is presented by Distinguished Concerts International (DCINY) a creative producing entity and a presenting organization with a long history of collaboration with Whitacre.

    The tour arrives in Boston at Symphony Hall with a performance on March 19, 2013, at 8pm. Tickets and information are available at www.bso.org (http://www.bso.org/Performance/Detail/48628/) .

    The ensemble begins its tour at the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesday, MD (March 18) and, after the Boston engagement, continues to Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center (March 20), and finally New York’s Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center (March 21). The concert program, entitled Inspirations, will feature works from the Eric Whitacre Singers’ Decca recordings – including Light & Gold and 2012’s Water Night – alongside works by American composers Morten Lauridsen and John Corigliano and beloved works by Monteverdi and Bach (complete program below).

    “This is, quite simply, one of the most exciting tours of my life,” writes Eric Whitacre about the upcoming American visit. “The Eric Whitacre Singers is a stunning group of musicians, singers and friends who brilliantly and uniquely combine intimacy and excellence in their performances. The idea of bringing them home to the US for what I hope will be the first of many trips is thrilling beyond belief.”
