Philip's Favorites

For 55 years, Philip Brunelle has been at the helm of VocalEssence, and now he is celebrating another milestone—his 80th Birthday—with no plans of slowing down! In honor of this monumental occasion, we will perform some of Philip’s favorite works from the past 55 years. Join us as we go down memory lane, rediscovering music of beloved composers, including Dominick Argento, Stephen Paulus, John Rutter, Libby Larsen, Melanie DeMore, Eric Whitacre, and more, all in the beautiful and intimate setting of Larson Hall at the American Swedish Institute.
