Duke Chapel Music: Chorworks Early Music Performances: A Program of Sacred and Secular Song

June 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Singers and musicians with the Chorworks early music summer program present this concert of Sacred and Secular Song. Free admission. This concert takes place in Duke Divinity School’s Goodson Chapel. Paid parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis in the Bryan Center Parking Garage at 125 Science Drive; ADA parking is available in the surface lot at the same address. In association with Duke Chapel Music, the Chorworks summer program brings early-career musicians from across the country to study and perform early music at Duke Chapel. Led by the Chapel’s conductor-in-residence, Dr. Philip Cave, distinguished faculty perform and offer in-depth study of music and its context. This year’s theme is “Henry Purcell (1659-95): England’s Orpheus.” One of England’s greatest composers, Henry Purcell composed music for church, court, and theater. His musical voice is unique: a blend of French joie-de-vivre, Italian drama, and England’s long choral tradition.
