Seraphic Fire’s GRAMMY® nominated Professional Choral Institute at Aspen Music Festival and School is the only summer program in the country designed to prepare emerging singers to work in the growing industry of professional ensemble singing. PCI alumni have now performed with nearly every professional vocal ensemble in the country. In 2012, Seraphic Fire and PCI received a GRAMMY® nomination for their recording of Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem.
PCI singers will have the opportunity to rehearse and sing two side-by-side concerts with Seraphic Fire: a collaboration with the Aspen Chamber Symphony in the Benedict Music Tent conducted by Xian Zhang, and a performance of Fauré’s Requiem and Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna in Harris Concert Hall conducted by Seraphic Fire founder and artistic director Patrick Dupré Quigley.
Participants will study in an intensive vocal and ensemble-skills curriculum, receiving individual and group vocal coaching from professional members of Seraphic Fire, and will participate in audition, resumé, and vocal masterclasses led by program director Patrick Dupré Quigley and members of Seraphic Fire. PCI students will also have the opportunity to perform in the PCI Student Showcase, which they can use as a live audition for Seraphic Fire and a number of other professional choirs.
