Durnbaugh Lecture: “Forgotten Sounds: Researching, Transcribing, Performing, and Reimagining the Music of the Eighteenth-Century Ephrata Cloister”

March 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

During the past two years, Christopher Herbert has worked with Ephrata music manuscripts, which represent a unique genre within American music. In collaboration with the Elizabethtown College Concert Choir, he will present this music, heard for one of the first times since the American colonial period. Herbert holds a BA in Music from Yale University, an MA in Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard University, and a DMA from the Juilliard School. He is an assistant professor at William Paterson University, where he heads the voice program. As a vocalist, he performs frequently throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Herbert is a two-time GRAMMY® nominee and the baritone in the critically acclaimed ensemble New York Polyphony.
