NAVE is an SATB (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass) group with a lot contemporary music in its repertoire. Brown says the group has become like a tight family, with Benware being their guide and mentor. She praises him as being very skillful and charismatic, able to get the best out of the group.
Brown said the holiday concerts will offer the audience the chance to sing. There will also be ten readers from the community employed in each performance. Readings will be from both the Old and New Testaments, and there will also be some poetry read.
Dispersed throughout are hymns accompanied by organ, as well as by the audience. And there will be around ten anthems by the choral group, making a nice mix, Brown said
The group performs primarily in a cappella style, Brown says, and will stay small and balanced, not incorporating songs that need a large orchestra. However, they do use some instruments occasionally. They want to remain true to their chamber music mission.
According to Brown, the church venues are beautiful looking, as well as sounding, and will heighten the performance.
