Vita Brevis, Ars Longa compels patrons to reflect on the importance of art and music in their lives.

MIAMI – In its 19th season led by Founder and Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, Seraphic Fire has met the live performance challenges of 2020 by designing dynamic multi-media programs that offer stimulating music as well as evocative educational discussions. On the heels of the successful launch of the Seraphic Saturday Podcast in May 2020, the team at Seraphic Fire will further expand its presence for the 2020-21 season, dubbed Season S. “Seraphic Fire has always worked to be on the front edge of trends in our artform while simultaneously honoring the great tradition of classical choral performance,” says James K. Bass, Associate Conductor at Seraphic Fire. “This season will look different, but our technology and programs are going to make participation especially exciting. We will interact with our audiences in ways we never previously imagined. And, equally important, we are true to our commitment to deliver the highest level of performance.”

“This experiment in music over distance has but one goal: to strengthen our connections as humans through the ephemeral language of music. Each member of the Seraphic Fire family, from listener to artist, has bravely persevered through isolation. It is our great hope that Season S will offer a respite from this separation and allow time to feel those emotions that make us human”, says Patrick Dupré Quigley, Artistic Director of Seraphic Fire.

Scintillating, sensitive, sublime, sensual; there are numerous catalysts for subscribers and participants to feel engaged on every sensory level with Season S. Vita Brevis, Ars Longa is the mantra for Season S: Life is short, and the appreciation of art is eternal. With a goal to inspire hope and illuminate life’s opportunities using the beautiful music of the 9th through the 21st century, Season S will feature six multi-media concert programs that use history’s perspective to connect the unusual experiences of 2020 with similar situations from the past. To create a fulfilling community experience, Seraphic Fire will incorporate multiple resources – internet, email, mail, and phone – to satisfy their patrons’ needs for entertainment, relaxation, and personal growth.

“Over the summer, we were thrilled to see the overwhelming support of the Seraphic Saturday Podcast and the swelling interest in our programming for the upcoming season. We see this interim period – Season S – as a unique opportunity to explore alternative presentation formats that will inform future program expansion while allowing us to execute outstanding performances – that is what resonates so deeply with our audiences,” says Rhett M. Del Campo, Executive Director of Seraphic Fire.

Seraphic Fire’s first multi-media performance titled Still. Here. will be hosted by Patrick Dupré Quigley and airs November 8th at 4:00 PM ET. It will feature a Renaissance theme expertly performed by 16 Seraphic Fire artists, including an organist, and lutist. December’s theme, aptly entitled Home for the Holidays, will be hosted by Associate Conductor James K. Bass and performed by 12 artists, streamed on December 20th at 4:00 PM ET. Patrons should expect to see a fine art masterpiece that incorporates not only highly talented singers, but images, dialogue, additional audio, and even mailings designed to provide a robust and stimulating experience. A live Q&A session with the host and selected performers will be a key part of every program throughout Season S.
