Boerne’s Cave Without A Name will host “Sounds of the Season,” a concert of Christmas Carols performed by the a cappella quartet Tinsel, on Saturday, November 26, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Advance tickets are $30; and $35 at the door. Tickets and information are available at www.cavewithoutaname.com or by calling 830.537.4212.
Tinsel is an a cappella quartet of professional, classically trained vocalists. Their sound is a mix of the traditional and the contemporary, the sacred and the secular, and barbershop and jazz, according to Laura Mercado-Wright, one of the founders.
“We want a balance between having the audience feel satisfied they heard their favorite Christmas song, with at least one moment where they say, that’s really interesting,” Mercado-Wright said of the arrangements. “And you can’t overstate the impact of four voices singing in harmony.”
The four voices include Trevor Shaw, tenor; Laura Mercado-Wright, mezzo-soprano; Courtney Pierce, soprano; and Thann Scoggin, bass. All are trained vocalists with credits that include performing with the Boston Pops and other leading symphonies and operas, and the Grammy®-winning vocal ensemble Conspirare.
This will be the group’s first time performing in a cave.
“This is such a special venue,” Mercado-Wright said. “The cave will make it a different experience than you have in any concert hall. It’s going to be a special night.”
Boerne’s Cave Without a Name is located about 11 miles northeast of Boerne TX at 325 Kreutzberg Rd. It is a natural, living cavern, with unique acoustic properties. Concerts are held in the Queen’s Throne Room, in a setting of stalactites, stalagmites, drapery, flowstones, and more.
