                                Comprised of Geoffrey Williams, countertenor, Steven Caldicott Wilson, tenor, Christopher Dylan Herbert, baritone, and
Craig Phillips, bass, New York Polyphony has been praised for a “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts” (National Public Radio). Founded in 2006, and regarded as one of the finest vocal chamber ensembles in the world, the group has maintained an active performance schedule. The four men “sing with intelligence, subtlety and consummate artistry” (Richmond Times-Dispatch).  The all-male quartet apply not only refined musicianship and interpretative detail, but also a refreshingly modern touch to repertoire that ranges from austere medieval melodies to cutting-edge contemporary works.
 
The ensemble has participated in major concert series and festivals throughout North America and Europe, including Miller Theatre at Columbia University; Dallas Chamber Music Series; Ireland’s Ardee Baroque Festival; Denmark’s Vendsyssel Festival, among others. In December 2011 they made their television debut on The Martha Stewart ShowNew York Polyphony’s debut CD I sing the birth, an intimate meditation on the Christmas season, garnered unanimous praise and Gramophone named it “one of the season’s best”.   They will present I sing the birth in Joplin.

New York Polyphony's appearnce in Joplin is sponsored, in part, by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.  Outreach activities sponsored, in part, by Con-way Truckload and the Rusty Smith Memorial Fund.
