Solaris Vocal Ensemble, brings to light great choral works that span the ages,

through compelling performances imbued with passion and musical artistry.




Our Delightful Pairings concert featuring classically based pieces creatively paired with a variety of choral favorites including spirituals, folksongs plus a jazzy song or two is available on YouTube. Featured composers include Ralph Vaughan Williams, Johannes Brahms, Lili Boulanger, Samuel Barber, Hoagy Carmichael and Robert De Cormier. The concert also includes a premiere work by Solaris member and VPR Classical host James Stewart – a setting of Emily Dickinson’s Poem The Brain is Wider than the Sky. 

The concert also features Grammy-nominated flutist, Karen Kevra as our guest artist. She is the founder and Artistic Director of Montpelier’s Capital Ciy Concerts.  

In her new audio series, Flute Stories, she performs and tells the stories behind pieces for solo flute. Listen as she talks about Debussy’s Syrinx, which she performs in the concert.
