The choir performed three diverse pieces that implemented the use of extended vocal techniques, such as whispering and vocal percussion. Some pieces featured accompaniments by instruments unique to the Mongolian culture, such as the morin khuur, a traditional bowed instrument with two strings. Students from the choir played these instruments, and they had great mastery in playing instruments as well as singing. Among my favorite elements of the pieces were the close dissonances that appeared often; the singers performed them with passion. The choir had an immense sound that echoed through the sanctuary, and had the audience members on their feet the instant the final piece ended.
