The event, hosted by the Collins Center for the Arts, will feature eight singers from the ensemble, including co-founder and co-artistic director Nacole Palmer of Bowdoin, Maine, performing composer David Lang’s choral score “the little match girl passion,” based on the 1845 story by Hans Christian Anderson about a girl who suffers and ultimately dies from the coldness of a harsh winter and the indifference of a society that ignores her plight.

The concert also will feature the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Heinrich Schütz, Samuel Coleridge Taylor, Jonathan Woody and Alice Parker.
