Thank you for a wonderful season!
Our 2018-2019 concert season has ended, and it's been an exciting and rewarding experience! Thank you to those who attended concerts, participated in composition workshops, donated to C4, and of course, our fabulous ensemble members, who sing, conduct, compose, and do so much more for this collective.
Come see C4 receive the 2019 Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming at the Chorus America Conference in Philadelphia on June 28, and stay tuned for more information on our upcoming season!
2019 Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming
We are thrilled to announce that C4 has won the 2019 Chorus America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. This is the second time C4 has won this prestigious award, the first time being in 2014.
The Chorus America/ASCAP Adventurous Programming Awards recognize choruses that demonstrate a sustained commitment to adventurous programming through performances of choral music written in the last 25 years.
The Choral Composer/Conductor Collective is a unique ensemble of singers, composers and conductors, performing pieces written within the last 25 years, premiering and commissioning new choral works, and mentoring emerging singers, composers, and conductors of today's choral music.
In a city teeming with exceptional vocal ensembles of every kind, C4 is a standout, not just because of their fine programming and unique collaborative structure, but also for their consistently beautiful and balanced sound, excellent precision, warmth, and energy.

A highlight was Niimi’s Concerto for Chorus (Bios)...which was given a scintillating account by 18 singers in the ensemble C4, with Timothy Brown conducting...[T]his nine-minute a cappella work for mixed chorus featured much divisi writing and complex polyrhythms that Brown and the singers transformed into exhilarating vocal pyrotechnics.

Their subtly attuned awareness of each others' musical movements makes their technical virtuosity seem near effortless.
~ Jean Ballard Terepka, Theatre Scene
They seem to revel in the challenges other choirs avoid like the plague. ... The group's dynamic is a lesson in exceeding expectations.
