FCS Hosts New York Polyphony
With a “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts,” as noted by NPR, the classical male vocal quartet New York Polyphony is establishing itself as one of the most highly regarded chamber ensembles in the world.
The group will bring its wide range of vocal styles to Friends’ Central School for a performance on Monday, May 7 at 7:00 pm at the School’s Shallcross Hall. The event is free and open to the public, as part of Friends’ Central’s new Artists in Residence Program.
“I am delighted to welcome New York Polyphony to Friends' Central School as our first Artists in Residence,” says Friends’ Central Choral director Michele Zuckman. “New York Polyphony is a stellar classical a cappella quartet. I greatly look forward to having them share their artistry with our music students and the broader community, and I am thankful for the generosity of Friends' Central alumni/ae and their families.”
The James F. Davis Artist in Residence Fund was established to both honor the legacy of retired vocal music teacher, Jim Davis, and also to extend Friends' Central's tradition of inviting distinguished guests to campus.
New York Polyphony includes:
Geoffrey Williams, countertenor
Steven Caldicott Wilson, tenor
Christopher Dylan Herbert, baritone
Craig Phillips, bass
