FRANKLIN, TN--(Marketwire - August 2, 2012) - North America's #1 independent classical music distributor, Naxos of America, will begin a partnership with one of the most respected contemporary a capella vocal ensembles in the U.S. in August 2012. Terpsichore Records features the recordings of The Esoterics, a Seattle-based ensemble that is dedicated to performing and perpetuating contemporary a capella choral settings of poetry, philosophy, and spiritual writings from around the world.
While cultivating artistic expression and cultural understanding among its singers and audience alike, The Esoterics aspire to reflect the beauty, power, and significance that are inherent in the music of our time. Since incorporating with this name in 1993, The Esoterics have performed over 300 concerts throughout the Pacific Northwest, have commissioned and premiered more than 100 new works for a capella voices in dozens of languages, and have mastered many of the most virtuosic choral compositions of the last century in concerts described as "compelling," "luxuriant" and "superb."
