A World-Class Ensemble

For over 48 years, the Vocal Arts Ensemble has been regarded as a community treasure of California’s central coast, regularly entertaining audiences with a variety of concerts in and around San Luis Obispo County.  The singers memorize all the words to each song and practice weekly. The group has also become highly regarded beyond our shores, winning friends, acclaim, and awards in international choral festivals.  Tours have included the British Isles, Russia, Poland, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Argentina, Uruguay, Sweden, Italy, France, Norway, Spain and Canada. 

Over the years, numerous singers with Vocal Arts have also been successful professional performers.  Others are dedicated amateurs who may be seen performing a variety of noteworthy “day jobs” in the community.  The group’s founder, Gary Lamprecht, was a well-known and inspiring teacher, leader, and visionary in the world of choral music, and who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement award from the American Choral Director's Association. 

From the late Gary Lamprecht: 
The English composer, John Rutter is one of the most performed composers of choral musician the world.  In this “Gary’s Favorites” concert we are doing two Rutter pieces.  

The “Cloths of Heaven” is a beautifully arranged composition by the great Irish poet,  William Butler Yeats.  “Esto Les Digo” is a prayer in Spanish.  Next the women of Vocal Arts will dance while performing Huddie Lebetter’s “Bring Me Little Water, Silvy”.  Morten Lauridsen is also a popular composer.  We will be doing two of his compositions .All in all, this is a Vocal Art variety concert with at least a few songs you will like.  I love them!

We are presenting two concerts, each in a beautiful setting. We invite you to join us for one both of these great shows:

THIS SHOW: 5/4 Saturday - Cuesta CPAC - 3:00 PM
