The Queens College Vocal Ensemble presents a program of music spanning five centuries, including Clément Janequin’s famous Chant des Oyseaulx (“Song of the Birds”), Samuel Barber’s Reincarnations, and two new works by current QC graduate students in composition.

The performance will culminate in choral arrangements of music by Brazilian composers Ernesto Nazareth and Sérgio Santos, in celebration of Queens College’s Year of Brazil. The arrangements have been specially crafted for the Vocal Ensemble throughout a yearlong collaboration with QC Alumnus and accomplished jazz musician Richard Boukas.
