Classical MPR Presents New York Polyphony

Posted at 12:20 PM on November 18, 2011 by Daniel Gilliam

In America's pantheon of vocal ensembles, and in particular those of the male variety, New York Polyphony has found its niche using the least amount of materials: four voices. NYP mainly sings music from the Medieval and Renaissance, though it ventures into the 20th and 21st centuries, as in their debut release I Sing the Birth, a meditative collection of Advent and Christmas works from Plainchant to Andrew Smith (born in 1970).

New York Polyphony's only Midwest stop this season will be in Minneapolis on December 9th, 7:30 p.m., at Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church. This is your chance to experience a unique concert of selections from their debut recording and their 2010 release Tudor City, in a beautiful, intimate sanctuary.
