Swarthmore College Performance:
Sunday, March 26, 3:00 pm

Combining a commitment to vivid live performance with the study of original source materials and historical performance practices, Blue Heron Vocal Ensemble ranges over a wide repertoire, including 15th-century English and Franco-Flemish polyphony, Spanish music between 1500 and 1600, and neglected early 16th-century English music with modern piece mixed in. This professional vocal ensemble is visiting Swarthmore from Boston where they are based.

Blue Heron’s program at Swarthmore, “Last Works and Legacies,” is the last installment in the ensemble’s “Ockeghem@600” effort to perform the complete works of a great European composer of the 15th century, Johannes Ockeghem. The concert will be held in the Lang Concert Hall, Lang Music Building.
