“Majestic God, our Muse inspire, and fill us with Seraphic Fire.” These words from William Billings’ Invocation rang out to open Seraphic Fire’s first-ever concert. Now, 10 years later, Seraphic Fire celebrates a decade of incredible music-making reuniting audiences’ favorite singers. This concert celebration will feature music by the young composers Seraphic Fire has championed over the years side-by-side with new and old masterpieces. This is an evening of vocal fireworks 10 years in the making.
Currently nominated for two GRAMMY awards (Best Small Ensemble and Best Choral Performance) Seraphic Fire has garnered international acclaim since its inception ten years ago. The London-based classical music magazine, Gramophone, has declared that Seraphic Fire “has quickly become one of the top attractions in the [South Florida] region” and the Chicago Classical Review states that Seraphic Fire is “stunning to behold.” The ensemble has also been proclaimed “a must-have ticket for devotees of classical music in South Florida,” by the Palm Beach Arts Paper and “one of the best choirs anywhere” by the Miami Herald.
