  • Ensemble Altera: Jewels of the English Renaissance. Six vocalists perform one-to-a-part works by Byrd, Tallis, Taverner, and others ranging from the intricacies of the Eton Choirbook to the elegant simplicity of the early Reformation.

  • Metropolitan Chorale: Home - Virtual concert including world premiere. This virtual presentation will feature the world premiere of a suite of four new pieces by Steven Sametz, with some old and new favorites. This project is a self-portrait; a snapshot of our year together in a virtual space, and the newfound significance of “home.” Members took part by contributing their own reflections on the concept of home over the past year, which then served as text for these new works, making this concert especially personal and unique for us. The concert will also feature works by Brahms and Stephen Paulus. [6/15/2021] Visit archive
  • Ourania: Renaissance n' Chill. Are you that early music nut who blasts Monteverdi while on your morning jog?

Looking for a rom-com? "When Amyntas met Phyllis" is the category for you! Crazy in love and need some inspo? "Mad About Thee" can help. And if you just want some raunchy fun, check out "Fa La La Land". All of these stories are set by some of your favorite composers: vocal trios by Weelkes, Marenzio, Wilbye, Palestrina, and others offer the ultimate escape to your musical desires.
