Nevermore Chamber Music Festival

Fourth Coast Ensemble is a classical vocal quartet specializing in the unique style and repertoire of vocal chamber music. Celebrated for “doing everything an organization can to sustain the viability of art song in Chicago” (Vocal Arts Chicago), Fourth Coast Ensemble embraces a repertoire that spans the history of the genre, from Schubert and Brahms to composers of the present day, including Lita Grier, Andrea Clearfield, and Lori Laitman.

This concert will feature tenor Ace Gangoso, baritone David Govertsen, and pianist Yasuko Oura in a program of classics to moderns, spanning European and American favorites to lesser-known gems.
