Calmus: Christmas Carols of the World

SPIVEY HALL DEBUT

With “impeccable blending and vocal beauty” (Salt Lake Tribune), the singers of Calmus “bring tremendous character and musical depth to their interpretations” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel). “Stunning in its vocal variety [and] mastery,” the a cappella quintet from Leipzig, Germany holds audiences “spellbound with its artistry,” says The Washington Post, whose critic proclaims, “I’ve never heard finer ensemble singing.”

Spivey Hall Friends Concert Sponsors: Jeanne and Michael Riggall & Janet Love
