I’m so excited to be hearing this group of all-female voices this weekend. As part of the regular performance season, the Chorus of Westerly hosts a Masters Series in the Spring. (Previous guests have included the Harvard Krokodiloes, Yale Whiffenpoofs, and the Dartmouth Aires) A professional vocal group comes to perform in our performance hall for one night only and it’s an honor to have such talented people grace us with their presence in little ol’ Westerly, Rhode Island. Especially when these groups usually only tour major cities here and abroad, we’re really grateful they would choose to include us in their touring schedule.
Dedicated to the expansion of repertoire for women’s voices, Lorelei Ensemble works to expose lesser-known early music from the Medieval through Baroque periods, while collaborating with living composers to produce innovative programming that speaks to a wider audience.
If you’re in the area on Saturday night and like what you hear in the introduction video, swing by the George Kent Performance Hall to listen to the Lorelei Ensemble live. It’s even better in person, trust me!
