The Waverly Chamber Music Series (WCMS) is set to host the Mirandola Ensemble at 2 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 10, in the Narthex at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 301 1st Street NW.
The Minneapolis-based professional choral ensemble dedicated to promoting the idea of choral music as ‘high art’ in the Western tradition and the aesthetics of the Renaissance. The Mirandola Ensemble features nine male and female vocalists as well as one guitar and one continuo. The group performs baroque-style pieces that feature Franz Schubert, Clement Janequin and more.
“It’s about bringing worldclass music to the Cedar Valley,” Eric Wachmann, music director for the Waverly Chamber Music Series and a Wartburg College music professor, said. “We hope that these concerts will serve as a beneficial experience to the entire community and really make Waverly distinctive. It is very rare to have a chamber series or
festivals like ours that is free and open to all, regardless of your background.”
The event is free to the public and open to any age. Attendees may support the WCMS through free-will donations. For more information, go to waverlychambermusicseries.com or email waverlychambermusicseries@ gmail.com.
