WHAT IS TRANSEPT

 

Transept is a vocal ensemble of elite professional consort singers and select local musicians based in Sioux Falls, SD.  

A transept turns a rectangular building into a basilica. Its span intersects the nave to give the structure its cruciform shape. The transept carries the weight of the structure’s meaning, in other words. It changes a physical space into a sign of transcendence. 

Transept is inspired by the architecture of beauty. We interweave music for vocal consort, soloists, and choir to draw audiences into an intimate, meaningful journey. We fill spaces with the sounds of transcendence.
