District Eight to Perform at Christ Church Easton March 10


On Sunday, March 10 at 4 pm the Christ Church Concert Series will present the Washington DC based a cappella ensemble, The District Eight.  The group, known for its creative programming and its superb blend, has appeared on the series previously with an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response. This will be the group’s third performance in Easton.

The District Eight has been acclaimed by The Washington Post for its “fine singers who blend and balance” and its “consistently beautiful performances.” The District Eight brings a lucid and colorful sound to a wide and fascinating repertoire, ranging from renaissance polyphony and English church anthems to modern American compositions and contemporary spirituals. Their sensitive and evocative interpretations of choral music have captivated audiences since 2010, “because of their exotic inscrutability...”

The District Eight has appeared at the Washington Early Music Festival, with the Norfolk Chamber Consort, The College of William and Mary, and the University of Tampa; as well as at St. James Methodist Church, Greenville, NC, St. John’s Cathedral in Jacksonville, Christ Church in Bradenton, Sarasota, FL, and St. Mary Mother of God in Washington, DC. In 2010 the ensemble joined forces with The Orchestra of the Seventeenth Century to present the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610.

Christ Church is located at 111 S. Harrison Street in downtown Easton.  Doors open on March 10 at 3:30 pm, and the concert is open to the public.  There is no admission charge, but a freewill offering will be received. This concert is supported in part by the Talbot County and Maryland State Arts Councils.  For more information call 410-822-2677.

    Christ Church is known for its outstanding musical offerings. This is yet another of their superb concerts. Having heard this group in the past I would urge everyone to come and hear The District Eight. Musical excellence at its best!
