"BASANT!" – The Mixolydians Spring Concert

Holing Yip ’10 writes

Come join Wesleyan’s only vocal chamber consort in “An evening of World Choral Music,” featuring lesser-heard music: chants, folksongs and tunes from Indonesia, China, Australia, the Philippines, Estonia, Latin America and England. This is a rare opportunity to hear some of these works in performance; many of these composers have never been heard of or performed in Wesleyan. Come create aural awareness!

Formed in the fall of 2006, the Mixolydians are a new fully mixed vocal ensemble formed with the purpose of performing, proliferating and cultivating an interest in the art of chamber works written for a small vocal ensemble. The Mixolydians also aims to instate a high standard of the choral art, and to explore new sonic spaces for musical and/or theatrical expression in a continuing search to re-examine the choral idioms of our time.
