Solo & Chamber Music Series features Anonymous 4

Pittsburg State University will feature two distinct musical genres in its gala opening concert of the 2007-08 Solo & Chamber Music Series.

The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 21, in McCray Recital Hall. It will feature the distinguished vocal ensemble Anonymous 4, a group of female singers renowned for their vocal blend and virtuosic ensemble singing.

Anonymous 4 has performed in concerts and at major international festivals throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Their music, which is interwoven with poetry and narrative, will feature two very different areas of song. The first half of the program, “A Medieval Ladymass,” consists of British chants and songs in honor of the Virgin Mary. The second half, “Gloryland,” features sacred American Folk Tradition music.

Anonymous 4’s award-winning recordings have sold nearly two million copies and received a host of honors including the Diapason d’Or award from France, the Antonio Vivaldi Award from Italy, several CD of the Year and Top Classical Artists of the Year awards from a variety of industry groups. They have been on a continuous award-winning run since their debut recording was named the 1992 Classical Disc of the Year by CD Review.

The group has appeared on a wide range of radio and television programs, including National Public Radio’s “Performance Today” and “Weekend Edition”; Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion”; CBS’s “Sunday Morning”; and on Discovery Health and Fox News.

Concert tickets are $10 for the general public and $7 for audience members under 18 and over 65. Tickets are available in advance from the PSU Ticket Office. Full-time students can attend the concert free of charge.
