Live, Virtual Concert!

Hearts and Voices Outstretched

December 18, 2020 — December 31, 2020

In this complicated time, Ember seeks to provide a deep sense of warmth, joy, and calm through a set of ancient texts known as the “O Antiphons.” These universal aspirations are all about hope and anticipation and are interwoven with beautiful seasonal carols.

You can join us on any device — phone, tablet, computer, tv, or VR headset. Upon ticket purchase you will receive a link that allows you to watch as many times as you wish during or anytime after the live broadcast.

Voices from the Earth

May 16 & 17, 2020

Are we able to listen beyond the chatter of human voices hearing the evolving messages uttered by our planet?

Culminating this 25th anniversary season will be a collaborative co-commission by celebrated composers Eric Banks and Robert Paterson that focuses on the global voice of our planet – its natural cycles and human interaction with those cycles. We extend the question, “What peril awaits should we choose not to listen?”
