Third Practice is a chamber vocal ensemble that seeks to bring the beauty of the human voice to new and broader audiences. We are dedicated to bridging the gap between traditional classical and contemporary music through thoughtful and adventurous programming that explores the close connections between today’s music and the music of the past. Third Practice is named after a term for the late style of composer Claudio Monteverdi, in which he is said to have fused elements of the older ‘first practice’ with the contemporary ‘second practice,’ creating a rich new musical language.
