The Duke Vespers Ensemble is a chamber ensemble focused on the performance of Renaissance polyphony and related genres. On Thursday evenings during the academic year, the choir helps to lead the Choral Vespers service. The Ensemble also performs free concerts in the Chapel and Durham community. It is directed by Brian Schmidt, the Assistant Conductor.
