International ensemble Vox Luminis to perform as part of the Con Spirito series

GREENVILLE, Pa.—International award-winning ensemble Vox Luminis will perform at Thiel College’s David Johnson Memorial Chapel at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11. The performance is part of the College’s Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series.

Vox Luminis—founded in 2004 in Namur, Belgium—is an ensemble specializing in the performance of 16th through 18th century vocal music. Critics praise the ensemble for its seamless blend of high-quality individual voices, exquisite tuning and clarity of sound.

The performance is free and open to the public.

Vox Luminis records for the Belgian Label Ricercar. Vox Luminis’s 2012 recording of Heinrich Schütz’s “Musicalische Exequien” won Gramophone’s Recording of the Year, the Baroque Vocal Gramophone Award and the International Classical Music Award. Other recordings have also received many awards throughout the world, including Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice, Diapason d’Or, Choc de Classica, Muse d’Or Baroque, Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, Joker de Crescendo and Prix Caecilia. Vox Luminis is grateful for the support of the Federation Wallonie-Bruxelles and the City of Namur.

The Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series began in the fall of 2007. Con Spirito presents concerts each year, featuring top chamber music groups from across the country. The series was created in honor of the late daughter of Dr. Glen Johnson H’88, Thiel College Board of Trustees chairman emeritus, and his wife, LaVonne, both generous friends of the College. The home of the Con Spirito Chamber Music Concert Series is the David Johnson Memorial Chapel, dedicated in 2006 and named in honor of the Johnsons’ late son.
