EVENT INFORMATION

The 10-member mixed-voiced and continuo ensemble from Belgian—acclaimed for their “profound, rewarding, and intoxicating” (Gramophone) performances—makes their Pomona College debut with motets from one of music’s most illustrious families — the Bach family — in "The Bach Dynasty."

Vox Luminis, created in 2004 by Artistic Director Lionel Meunier, performs over 60 concerts a year, appearing on stages around the world. Since its inception, the ensemble has been defined by its unique sound, appealing as much through the personality of each timbre as it does through the color and the uniformity of the voices.

Vox Luminis has released 13 albums on the labels Alpha Classics, Ricercar, Ramée, and Musique en Wallonie. These recordings have enjoyed international critical acclaim, and have won numerous prizes including the prestigious Gramophone Recording of the Year in 2012 for the Musicalische Exequien by Heinrich Schütz, and the 2018 Choral Award from BBC Music Magazine for their recording of music of the Reformation, Ein Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott, released on Ricercar Records.

Recent highlights include Vox Luminis' residence at the Juilliard School and a debut at Lincoln Center along with debuts at the Arsenal in Metz and at the Gyndebourne Festival Opera, at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, and at the Our Lady of Ambronay abbey.

This year, the ensemble celebrates 15 years with sublime collaborations and a busy touring schedule, including their performance at Pomona College. They will offer an all-Bach program with music by J.S. Bach and other members of the Bach family in a program entitled "The Bach Dynasty."
