Seraphic Fire show Friday

Concert begins Performing Arts Series at Goshen College.

GOSHEN — The 2012-13 Performing Arts Series season at Goshen College will kick off with a concert by Seraphic Fire Friday at 7:30 p.m. The show will take place in Goshen College Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall.

Tickets for the concert cost $35, $30 and $20 and are available through the Goshen College Welcome Center. Call 574-535-7566, email welcomecenter@goshen.edu or purchase online at www.goshen.edu/tickets.

The program, titled “This is Seraphic Fire!,” will feature a combination of motets and choral miniatures combined with pieces from the U.S. folk tradition.

Based in south Florida, the chamber choir’s repertoire ranges from classical to contemporary and sacred to secular choral works. Founded in 2002 by artistic director Patrick Dupré Quigley, the group has since garnered critical acclaim, including two Grammy nominations in 2012 for its recordings “Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem” and “A Seraphic Fire Christmas.” Seraphic Fire was the only choir in North or South America to be nominated, and the only classical ensemble in the world to be nominated for two separate projects.

Seraphic Fire is also focused on educational outreach. The Miami Choral Academy, Seraphic Fire’s inner-city education initiative, aims to change lives of underprivileged children by offering daily afterschool choral music instruction at disadvantaged Miami-Dade County public elementary schools. The program serves 200 children in five afterschool choirs.

Additionally, Seraphic Fire has established the annual two-week Professional Choral Institute & Artistic Director Academy. The goal behind the academy is to train aspiring pre-professional singers and conductors with the aim of giving them the musical and business skills to make professional choral and ensemble singing their full-time vocation. The Professional Choral Institute is the only such program in the United States.

Seating for those with disabilities is available at the GC concert, and the minimum age of attendees is 5 years old. Tickets are nonrefundable.
