The Quink Vocal Ensemble is a group of four Dutch singers who have built a reputation by captivating audiences with an expressive a cappella repertoire. The members of Quink are experienced soloists who are at home with various styles that range from early Renaissance to modern music. Quink’s first United States tour in 1985 was so successful that the group now returns each season. The Musical Excursions performance represents the group’s New Orleans debut.

Critics have lavished praise on Quink, including the Philadelphia Inquirer, which said, “The group has a tight, polished sound. The surface of the music glistened, and the intonation was flawless. Only practiced musicians who additionally are humble enough to allow their voices to be included within the whole sound can create such music.” The New York Times commented, “Elegant phrasing, impeccable intonation and a purity of tone reminiscent of Renaissance madrigals.”

Musical Excursions is presented jointly by the Department of Music and the Arts Administration Program at the University of New Orleans. The sponsors for the 2015 series are: the Harper Family Foundation, the Mitchiner-Gittinger Family Foundation, 89.9 WWNO and UNO Student Government.
