    Our season opens with a concert presented by American pianist, Joseph Kingma. In addition to a busy performance schedule, our guest pianist is formerly Assistant Professor of Music at Louisiana College and newly appointed Assistant Professor at Palm Beach Atlantic University. Along with works by Rameau and Liszt, Dr. Kingma will play Claude Debussy’s three movement masterpiece, Estampes, L. 100, together with other familiar Debussy compositions. We are thrilled to welcome Joseph to St. James and look forward to him "painting" scenes of moonlight, Japanese pagodas, warm Spanish evenings and French gardens in the rain with his artistry.

    BBC Magazine described VOCES8 as “eight beautifully integrated solo voices” and Gramophone Magazine has said “they bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning”. We are extremely pleased to present the men and women of VOCES8 in central Louisiana in a concert of choral repertoire ranging from Renaissance polyphony to contemporary commissions and arrangements.

    Grand Finals winner of the 2016 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the sensational young Polish countertenor (and champion breakdancer), Jakub Józef Orliński, together with his comrade in music, accompanist and fellow Pole, Michał Biel, will close the 2018-2019 season with Baroque aria fireworks. Of Mr. Orliński, The New York Times has said he “combines beauty of tone and an uncommon unity of color and polish across his range”. This will be a perfect close to a truly international (American, French, British and Polish) season!
