Acclaimed German vocal ensemble Singer Pur will return to the Dickinson campus to perform in concert on Saturday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Rubendall Recital Hall, Weiss Center for the Arts.
The performance, "Singer Pur: A Thousand Years of Vocal Music," is free and open to the public. The program includes songs about love, death and mock-turtle soup, pairing medieval composers with classical masters like Brahms and contemporary artists like Sting and Chick Corea.

Singer Pur has been described by BBC Music Magazine as having “a razor-sharp sense of pitch and a focused, pure tone … something truly rich and marvelous.” Renowned for their eclectic vocal makeup—a soprano, baritone, bass and three tenors—Singer Pur has appeared on international television and radio programs, and their discography consists of more than 20 CDs. The group first visited Dickinson in 2014 and returns to the college as artists-in-residence for a series of master classes, workshops, lectures and round-table discussions in addition to the concert.
