Angelus preforms in Boone

Angelus will make a stop in Boone on their tour of the Carolinas.

Angelus, a premiere vocal ensemble from the Mt. Vernon Senior High School Fine Arts Academy in Mt. Vernon, Ind., will present an evening concert at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (170 Councill St., Boone) on Monday, July 15. The concert starts at 7 p.m.

Whether the stark beauty of an 11th century chant, the rich harmonic language of a contemporary Irish work or the rusticism of a Sacred Harp tune, Angelus finds its voice in the wide range of sacred works it performs.

Completely unique among American high school ensembles, Angelus is dedicated to the performance of sacred music of varied religious traditions and historical periods. Angelus is comprised of six young women who perform music ranging from medieval chant and polyphony to the American Sacred Harp tradition, as well as contemporary American and Irish works.

Angelus has appeared in concert in cathedrals and churches in Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Indianapolis, New York, San Francisco and St. Louis, as well as churches throughout the Midwest. The group has been featured on “Celtic Connections” on National Public Radio and in Europe on the Dutch program, “Song from Ireland.”

The concert is free and open to the public. A free will offering will be received, and the ensembles CDs will be available for purchase. For more information, call (828) 264-8943.
