Memorial Chapel

Emory & Henry Arts Series presents a concert by the all-men's vocal ensemble, Brethren, on Thursday, Nov. 7.

The performance, which begins at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Chapel, includes a wide variety of musical styles, from doo-wap to contemporary Christian to Southern gospel  to traditional hymnody and patriotic to Renaissance polyphony.

Dr. Robert Matthews, faculty member and director of choral and vocal studies at Emory & Henry College, sings tenor in Brethren.

The group is based out of the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area and maintains a total membership of approximately 30 singers chosen by audition. They come from diverse walks of life and from 19 states.

The quality of group's musicianship is demonstrated by their performance venues, which have included numerous annual meetings of the American Choral Director's Association as well as locations on Capitol Hill and throughout the DC, Maryland and Virginia area.

The group headlined the annual Music and Liturgical Arts Week at Lake Junaluska Assemble in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina (June 2008). In July and August of 2008 the group sang with the Bendiji Symphony (Minnesota), and over the next 18 months sang in Georgia, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. They have also performed with the Bismarck Symphony (North Dakota).

Since their founding in 2006, Brethren released several recordings, including The Hymn Project, How Sweet the Sound, Homeland, Then Christmas Comes, Prayers and Praise.  As in their concerts, these recordings contain an eclectic mixture of performance styles and configurations, including solos, duets, small ensembles and bull choir.
