Notes & Reviews:

C4 is a collectively run vocal ensemble seeking to enrich audiences through passionate advocacy of new choral works. The Collective performs works written within the last 25 years, commissions and premieres new works and mentors the singers, composers and conductors of today's choral music scene.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
C4, a choral, composer, conductor collective, still plays it safe with the inclusion of sweeping, tonal pieces like Ted Hearne's We cannot Leave and the chanting, rhythmic Heeoooooomoha by Toby Twining. Karen Siegel's haunting Saguaro begins with some deft vocal matching and moves quickly to syncopated melodies above low pedals or below a high ostinato.
