Ekmeles

Tuesday, March 4, 2014, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.

Making their Miller Theatre debut, the New York-based vocal ensemble Ekmeles brings a program of contemporary a cappella works to the stage in a variety of settings, from solos and duets to full-ensemble sextets. Featuring an all-star cast of singers, Ekmeles, which takes its name from the Ancient Greek word describing complex musical tonalities “not appropriate for musical usage,” promises to push the boundaries of vocal performance and unleash a torrent of new and exciting sound in the process.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
