Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble, “A Summer Night on the Water”
June 10, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
Through the changing of seasons, we know one thing to be true, that we are desperate to feel the weight of hot, humid air. The cool touch of ocean spray. The smell of a coming storm.
Join the Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble (www.glassbrookvocal.org) as it presents a captivating program featuring works by Delius, Barber, Bennett-Thomas, Elder, and Matthews, “A Summer Night on the Water” captures the ineffable moments of summer that define an unspoken, but nearly universally understood sense of rhythm as our relationship to the world around us changes through the year.
The Glassbrook Vocal Ensemble is a professional choir based in Ewing, NJ seeking to enrich the lives of those in diverse communities by supplying the highest caliber of choral music-making.
