We live in a world that seems connected by technology, yet many people long for an authentic connection with real people, in real time, hearing real sounds without amplification or earbuds. Imagine yourself not just hearing the music, but feeling the sound waves coming from highly trained voices only a few feet away, in a space meant for only a special few.
Georgia O’Keefe once said of her intimate portraits of flowers that she wanted "even busy New Yorkers [to] take time to see what I see of flowers.”
Genesis Chamber Singers has a similar purpose. We hope our performances help people take a little bit of time out of their busy lives to stop, to listen, and to feel the connection to great choral music.
Genesis is innovating the concept of musical performance by integrating the audience into the experience. We want to remove the formal barriers people often feel between themselves and classical musicians.
Our singers are professional musicians who seek to share their passion and knowledge with the Genesis audience. Our performances provide opportunities for audience members to discuss the music with the singers --- before, after, and even during the performance. And at select concerts, our featured composer will be present and available to answer questions about how a classical choral piece is created.
We also invite you, the audience member, to have a voice in the process. During each concert, you will have a chance to provide input into what is performed that very night.
But, you can also simply sit back and enjoy the experience of listening to and feeling a newfound connection to great classical music. Our concerts take place in small spaces, so that our audiences can become fully immersed in the sounds that surround them.
Learn a little. Join the conversation. Make the connection. Be a part of Genesis.
