Schola Adventus is a professional choral ensemble specializing in Renaissance polyphony and performing under the direction of Paul M. Ellison, a graduate of London's Royal Academy and Queen's College, Cambridge among other institutions. This is a rare opportunity to hear Schola Adventus perform this exceptional work, supported by the "jewel box" acoustics of Church of the Advent.
The concert will be a benefit for Les Petits Chanteurs, the boys choir of Holy Trinity Music School (Ecole de Musique Ste. Trinité), an Episcopal choir school in Port-au-Prince, Haïti. The school was destroyed along with Holy Trinity Cathedral in the January 2010 earthquake. Les Petits Chanteurs lost four choir members in the quake. Schola Adventus hopes to be able to make a generous contribution to their rebuilding efforts.
