Garden City, NY - October 28, 2015 - Adelphi University is pleased to announce that the world-renowned vocal ensemble amarcord will be performing on Sunday, November 8, at 4:00 p.m. at the Performing Arts Center, Adelphi University, Concert Hall (One South Avenue, Garden City, NY).  The group brings to AUPAC their Restless Love program, which includes a rich selection of rarely heard Italian madrigals, German songs from the group’s home in Leipzig (including works by Schumann and Mendelssohn) and a unique collection of folk songs from around the world, including the Philippines (arranged specially for amarcord by Adelphi Associate Professor and Music Department Chair Sidney Boquiren), Ghana, Cuba, Japan, Thailand, Russia and Israel.

Direct from Germany, amarcord is considered one of the finest vocal ensembles in the world. Born of the celebrated tradition of the St. Thomas Boys Choir in Leipzig, these five former members of the choir create a bridge with their repertoire between medieval music traditions and modern compositions. The group captivates with its expressive, clear and precise singing, and also with its engaging performance style.

Known as one of the leading representatives of Leipzig’s music scene in Germany and abroad, amarcord makes regular appearances at festivals, the ensemble has toured the globe including cities like New York, San Francisco, Houston, as well as to Central America, Australia, Japan, Israel, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.  In addition, amarcord has received six Contemporary A Cappella Recording Awards (CARA)!
