Grammy-nominated vocal quartet based out of New York City returns to The Trust after selling out their past performances.  Praised for a “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts,” (National Public Radio) New York Polyphony is regarded as one of the finest vocal chamber ensembles in the world.

New York Polyphony will perform a program that includes the world premiere of Gregory Spears’ The Bitter Good. This is a piece he wrote for New York Polyphony with commissioning funding from Chamber Music America.  The group’s baritone, Christopher Herbert’s, researched the music of Ephrata. He uncovered, studied, and catalogued 122 music manuscripts created by the solitary brethren and sisters of the eighteenth-century Ephrata Cloister. One of his noteworthy findings was to prove that the sisters wrote some of the music, marking them the first known female composers in the Americas. Spears wrote a new work for New York Polyphony based on his research and using texts by various Cloister members.

New York Polyphony is excited to bring this Lancaster County-inspired piece to a world premiere at The Trust.

Christopher Herbert will provide a 45 minute pre-concert lecture on Monday at 6:15 PM.

OPUS 3 Artists is the exclusive North American Booking Representative of New York Polyphony.
