Concert-goers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite a cappella choral music over the centuries and hear it performed by Miami’s own GRAMMY-nominated choir.

Founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, professional chamber choir Seraphic Fire has garnered critical acclaim both locally and nationally. In an exciting crossover collaboration in 2004, Seraphic Fire was invited to record with international pop-star Shakira on a track for her album Oral Fixation II, which ultimately went Platinum. Seraphic Fire has released four CD recordings to date and will release a fifth next year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. In September of 2007, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation awarded a grant to Seraphic Fire for the formation of a new chamber orchestra.
