Miami-Based Chamber Ensemble to Perform Monteverdi’s “Vespers of 1610”

MIAMI, FL – Seraphic Fire, South Florida’s twice GRAMMY®-nominated chamber ensemble, will make its Washington D.C. debut February 8th, 2014 with a performance of Claudio Monteverdi’s masterpiece, Vespers of 1610, within the breathtaking acoustic of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Seraphic Fire’s 8:00pm performance is free and open to the public. Tickets, required for entry, can be reserved online by visiting Seraphic Fire’s website,

Seraphic Fire is well acquainted with the Vespers. In August 2010, the ensemble’s self-released album of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 quickly soared to #1 on the iTunes classical chart, catching the eye of NPR’s All Things Considered, which ran a story about Seraphic Fire (“From Zero to Hero”) on its weekend edition. This recording followed an international tour to Mexico City where Seraphic Fire performed the work in Mexico’s premier performance venues including the Catedral Metropolitana de Mexico and the Palacio de Bellas Artes.

Seraphic Fire is widely regarded as one of the most important professional vocal ensembles in the United States. An American All-Star ensemble made up of the best ensemble singers from across the United States, Seraphic Fire saw two recordings—Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem and A Seraphic Fire Christmas—receive nominations in the Best Choral and Best Small Ensemble categories, respectively, of the 2012 GRAMMY® Awards. The ensemble’s repertoire and recording catalogue spans over one thousand years of sacred music, from Gregorian chant to newly-commissioned works.
