Choral Arts Alliance of Missouri’s newest extension, Prometheus joins as the organization’s permanent professional Artists-in-Residence. Under the direction of Artistic Director R. Paul Crabb and Assistant Director Emily Edgington Andrews, Prometheus’ ten singers hail from regions across the United States. Each of them leading professional lives as soloists and chamber musicians, their collected experience brings a special breadth and depth to the ensemble, lending Prometheus a unique versatility and intimacy. The ensemble will join CAAM once a year to lead masterclasses and educational workshops, perform on tours, and to represent the organization as ambassadors nationally and internationally of the artistic virtues for which CAAM is known: Excellence, Education, and Innovation.
Summer 2016 Tour
This summer’s tour, Calls Me Home, will highlight all of the artistic assets the ensemble brings to the CAAM team, in a diverse and powerful musical program not to be missed. Celebrating the exceptional beauty and verve of a cappellamusic, the program contains music of Palestrina, Lassus, and Victoria, as well as sublime arrangements of stunning and rarely-heard American, Swedish, and Finnish folk music. Also appearing on the program are modern and new music settings by such composers as Lauridsen, Runestadt, Muhly, and Omiccioli. Appearing multiple times in a variety of stunning venues in the Kansas City, Topeka, and Columbia, Prometheus will not disappoint. Don’t miss this opportunity!
