Review for Octarium, Kansas City, MO, USA
I have conducted choirs, sung in choirs and enjoyed listening to beautiful choral music for most of my professional life, and I have never heard a choir like Octarium. The have a blend a balance of an ensemble 4 times their size, and a purity that a larger choir would be incapable of matching. Simply put, Octarium is a musical gem; a rare and priceless one at that.
Personally, my favorite performances of theirs include the Manuel ALLELUIA and Lauridsen's O MAGNUM MYSTERIUM. Octarium brings out the beauty of these wonderful pieces in a powerful and moving way.
I look forward to following Octarium through the years, and benefitting from their beautiful music.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I am a musician: composer, conductor, performer and educator; and their music is directly related to all of my fields of expertise. I listen to their music for my own inspiration and enrichment. I also highly recommend their music to others.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Do whatever I could to increase their budget for recordings, performances, workshops, seminars for youth, etc.
