New York Polyphony Performs at SU Saturday, September 26

New York PolyphonySALISBURY, MD---The Peter and Judy Jackson Chamber Series at Salisbury University presents New York Polyphony 7 p.m. Saturday, September 26, in Holloway Hall Auditorium.

Praised by National Public Radio’s All Things Considered for its “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts,” the group has been hailed as one of the world’s finest vocal chamber ensembles. The New Yorker has called its members “singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure.”

The quartet applies a modern touch to repertoire that ranges from austere medieval melodies to cutting-edge contemporary compositions. Comprised of countertenor Geoffrey Williams, tenor Steven Caldicott Wilson, baritone Christopher Dylan Herbert and bass Craig Phillips, the ensemble has performed nationally and internationally at venues including London’s Wigmore Hall.
