View Calendar for "Cathedral Singers"
The Cathedral Singers is an independent ensemble of professional
vocalists resident in the Chicago area. These singers participate
in a wide range of musical activity, from early music performance
to jazz and musical theater. Their collective experience and superb
musicianship contribute to a unique interpretation of many styles
of choral music.
Founded in 1991 primarily as a recording ensemble, the Cathedral Singers have produced over twenty compact disc recordings under the direction of conductor and composer Richard Proulx. These recordings include the Ars Antiqua Choralis series, Proulx Conducts Proulx, a collection of Joseph Gelineau's psalm settings, and several collections of music from the Iona Community, among others. Two selections from the Singers' recording Sublime Chant were featured on a May 1996 episode of the NBC television drama ER, and the entire chant recording is included in a recent New Earth video, Mount Shasta: Meeting of Heaven and Earth. Their 1995 and 2000 highly-acclaimed recordings of Baroque Music from the Bolivian Rain Forest have been distributed worldwide. The ensemble has appeared with the Metropolis Symphony Orchestra, and has presented concerts in Saint Louis, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Saint Paul, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Chicago.
