Eastern New Mexico University will be hosting a free concert by a New York-based quartet 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Buchanan Hall of the Music Building. The New York Polyphony has performed throughout the United States and Europe.
NYP delivers a dynamic performance from a wide range of styles, such as austere medieval melodies to the cutting edge of contemporary works, and balance refined musicianship with a unique modern sense, according to its website (newyorkpolyphony.com).
NYP’s current CD, “Tudor City,” spent three weeks in Billboard’s Top 10 classical album charts. It has been played on Danish Public Radio, American Public Radio and NPR’s “All Things Considered.” The group has released four albums. Their debut CD was “I sing the birth,” a meditation on the Christmas season.
The band consists of countertenor Geottrey Williams, tenor Geottrey Silver, baritone Christopher Dylan Herbert and bass Craig Phillips.
