Premiere Concert of the Ars Longa Quire – A Generous Gift of Celebration in Song

Posted March 17, 2013 by Ellen Gilmer

The premiere concert of the Ars Longa Quire at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Huntington, Long Island, NY, at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, January 13th, 2013, was a beautifully presented and performed program of uniquely combined choral selections. At once in contrast to and complementary of one another, the vocal works included revealed the individual expertise of each singer as well as a subtly refined precision of vocal blending and tonal quality unity. At times, the lilting swell of the glorious choral mix rose to fill the sanctuary, reverberating from the distant architectural heights of the arched English Gothic style ceiling above. Whenever called for by the music, however, the choir members joined to produce a concise, singular note in perfect unison and expertly achieved sotto voce.

Posted November 14, 2016 by Ellen Gilmer

In her recent concert in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center on Saturday evening, October 29, 2016, Jiaoyue Lyu enchanted and entranced her audience with a program rich in traditional Chinese poetic music selections. This enlightening concert was performed by Ms. Lyu on the ancient stringed instruments of Guqin and Zhu, both very significant in the traditions of Chinese music. Jiao’s exemplary affinity with and command of these fascinating instruments reveals their uniquely expressive and innately beautiful timbre and exquisite range of tonalities.
