The San Diego-based chamber choir SACRA/PROFANA has accomplished remarkable things in just ten years, including numerous world and U.S. premieres and collaborations with leading regional arts organizations. This year marks their debut on the St. James Music Series.

The night skies have fascinated poets, thinkers, painters, and musicians since the dawn of time. In this program SACRA/PROFANA will present some of the finest choral music with the theme of stars, nighttime, and celestial bodies, with an emphasis on recently composed music. The group will put their stamp on modern masters such as Morten Lauridsen, René Clausen, and Frank Ticheli, as well as rising stars of choral music such as Eriks Esenvalds and Sarah Rimkus.

Conductor Juan Carlos Acosta says “We are absolutely thrilled to be making our debut on the St.

James Music Series. The setting is ideal, and we think that the audiences will appreciate our

approach to this stunning music.”
