In the first ever collaboration of its kind, Skylark’s performance of All-Night Vigil (‘Vespers’) will include the full 22-member Skylark ensemble which will come together with three incredible, world-renowned basso profundos: Eric Alatorre, who recently retired from a 30-yearcareer as basso profundo with the Grammy® Award-winning all male Chanticleer ensemble, Glenn Miller, the United States’ leading basso profundo and Adrian Peacock, from Great Britain, an award-winning, Grammy®-nominated audio producer who is also an internationally acclaimed bass choralsinger and soloist. “These three giants of the choral world are appearingtogether for the first time – I cannot begin to imagine what this profoundcollaboration is going to sound like” notes Artistic Director Matthew Guard. “Their contribution to our performance of Rachmaninoff’s stunning All-Night Vigil, the greatest masterwork of a cappella music, is sure to beepic.” Two key soloists will be featured as well in these performances: tenor Jonas Budris and mezzo-soprano Luthien Brackett.
