The Enlightenment Festival begins February 16!

In its two-decade history,

Seraphic Fire has become a staple of the local and national arts community. Lauded by Gramophone for its “mellifluous, crystalline artistry,” and called “one of the best excuses for living in Miami” by el Nuevo Herald, Seraphic Fire has gained an international reputation for dynamic, cutting-edge, and historically informed programming that encompasses both secular and sacred literature.

The ensemble’s roster is populated by performers, teachers, and scholars who represent the best of the American school of vocal and instrumental training. Seraphic Fire is led by its founder, Patrick Dupre Quigley.

Seraphic Fire will join Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra to close out Robert Spano’s inaugural season as Music Director with Haydn's monumental work, The Creation, a dramatic oratorio for vocal soloists, orchestra, and choir that renders the Biblical text in music. Acclaimed visual artist Elaine J.
