The Thirteen is a relatively new classical performance ensemble, founded in 2012. The professional choir draws on a cast of vocalists from some of the world’s most outstanding ensembles, including Cleveland’s Apollo’s Fire, to perform repertoire ranges from the middle ages to contemporary composers.
Director Matthew Robertson will be bringing the group to Cleveland’s Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist Cathedral downtown. There they’ll perform a progam called “TALLIS Through the Looking Glass,” which includes works by Benjamin Britten, Williams Burd, Meredith Monk, Thomas Tallis, Robert White, Caroline Shaw, Henry Purcell and Ted Hearne, a 37-year-old composer from Chicago who, like me, was a member of the Chicago Children’s Choir.
Admission is free, and there’s free parking in the Cathedral garage off Rockwell at East 9th Street.
