at The Haven
112 West Market Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902
$10 at the door (or max $50 for a choir)
This is a sing-a-long, not a concert. All singers, all parts, all ages are invited to join MIRA in this early music sing-along. We will sing a number of popular selections from The Oxford Book of Tudor Anthems as well as some that are performed less frequently but are equally beautiful. Join us for this first time event in Central Virginia as we "Sing Joyfully" as William Byrd suggests! Copies of the Oxford book will be available to borrow, but if you have a copy of the book, please bring it with you, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a list of PDFs that you can download and print from CPDL.org. Listeners as well as singers welcome

MIRA is a vocal ensemble that focuses primarily on the rich polyphony of the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries, particularly of the English and Flemish schools. MIRA also explores medieval music and works by more contemporary composers such as Benjamin Britten, whose compositions reflect the style of earlier periods.
Based in Charlottesville, Virginia, MIRA was founded in 2005 by director Raven Hunter. The ensemble has performed throughout Virginia, most notably at Historic Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg and as a featured ensemble in the Staunton Music Festival Summer Season. MIRA has also performed as a guest choir for the Evensong service at the Washington National Cathedral.
