This holiday season the Vocal Art Ensemble of Davis, under the direction of Tracia Barbieri, will mesmerize its audience with the sounds of the East as they present silken songs, choral gems, instrumental spices, and exquisite tapestries of vocal beauty.
This rich and varied concert experience sets ancient jewels from the Old and New Worlds, melds divine male plainchant with luscious Eastern European women’s chorus, and weaves together elegant Polish Magnificats with vibrant Zambian celebrations.
The concert will also feature exotic and ethnic dancers from Davis’ Fiesta DanceN’ Fitness: Multicultural Arts & Wellness, stirring your sense of adventure on a musical journey of minstrels and dance under the Magi’s crystal skies.
The Vocal Art Ensemble is a 22-member a capella choir approaching its fifth anniversary in the spring of 2013. Following Barbieri’s artistic vision, the group has brought sublime, expressive choral pieces from the early European, multi-ethnic and modern repertoire to audiences throughout the Davis-Sacramento region.
