Beer. Books. Bernstein.

Check out a preview of Verdigris Ensemble's upcoming Lenny Lenny Lenny! concert at Deep Vellum Books, in partnership with Friends of WRR! FREE WINE will be available as well as tickets and season subscriptions.
It's Bernstein's 100th birthday and we want to celebrate it by showing you the human behind the musical genius. We're pairing Bernstein's letters and correspondences with friends to show you how his life experiences informed his musical choices. Featuring Bernstein's Chichester Psalms as well as music from musicals such as West Side Story and On The Town.
Praised for being "one of the most innovative chamber choirs" by TheaterJones, and one that performs with "impressive assurance" by Dallas Morning News, the Verdigris Ensemble has quickly established firm roots in DFW. In just one year, Verdigris Ensemble performed 9 concerts, workshopped 6 specific outreach initiatives, performed 3 world premieres, and received 14 media features from KERA, Dallas Morning News, TheaterJones, 101.1 WRR, and more. Future 2018-19 Season collaborations include the Dallas Symphony's SOLUNA Festival, Irving Chorale, Temple Emanu-El Choir, Avant Chamber Ballet, composers, Nicholas Reeves and David Ross Lawn, and visual artist, Stephen Zhang.

Verdigris Ensemble's mission is to tell shared stories of the human condition, weaving intricate choral programs into multi-layered experiences. Both in concert and outreach, our mission is to enrich, inspire, and invest in our community through honest choral storytelling.
