The Triad Vocal Ensemble, a 24-voice mixed choir adult choir, is comprised of professional musicians as well as talented amateur singers.

Each season the Triad Arts Ensemble collaborates with many of New Jersey’s best talent to create a memorable event celebrating the courage and dignity of the human spirit, while also offering remembrances for lives lost.

Triad Arts Ensemble is partnering with two NJ churches for the 2021 Canticles for Life AIDS Benefit Concerts to raise much-needed funds that will impact many lives. Proceeds raised will directly benefit three NJ organizations that support those impacted by HIV/AIDS and in memory of those lost to the disease, as well as raise awareness, dispel ignorance and help to shine compassion.

This year’s program will feature the Rhino Youth Performing for Change (YPC) ensemble. YPC is a troupe of kids between the ages of 10 and 18 who use the power of the performing arts to make a difference in our communities. Through their performances, they tackle issues such as bullying and self-awareness, disaster outreach, environmental education, and world hunger. Their set will inspire and delight! Canticles Chairperson Ginny Johnston will conduct the 30-voice Triad Vocal Ensemble, which will feature a mix of styles including traditional anthems, pop arrangements, and brand new works. Rounding out the program will be the Dan Crisci Jazz Trio, offering several instrumental songs, including original selections from Dan’s recent recordings. Additionally, panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt will be on display, and there will be a time of reflection and sharing by representatives from the charities. Receptions will follow the concerts.
