Video: Vocal ensemble, New York Polyphony, works with choral students

The four-man a cappella group New York Polyphony performed in Blacksburg recently in an event presented by the Center for the Arts in partnership with the Department of Music and the School of Performing Arts and Cinema.

Before the performance, the quartet led a master class with the Virginia Tech Chamber Singers, an advanced choral group of 36 students, including 16 students from Virginia Tech’s Department of Music in the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences. Under the direction of Dwight Bigler the students performed the Renaissance piece “Christe Jesu, pastor bone” by John Taverner.

The workshop also served as preparation for the students, who traveled to the Virginia Music Educators Association’s annual conference the following day to perform for music educators from across Virginia.
