While we cannot gather, we still can listen, and be transported.

Ars Nova Singers firmly opposes discrimination of every kind and the hatred and brutality that result from it. We stand compassionately for people of color and abhor the intolerable cruelty, bias, and bigotry they have endured through this nation’s persistent systemic racism.

Black Lives Matter.

We raise our voices in unity with the expanding worldwide chorus against racism in all its forms.

We recognize that institutions and ensembles of classical music like Ars Nova can do more to fight racism than they have in the past. We are committed to re-evaluating our core repertoire and ensuring that it amplifies the voices of Black composers and other composers of color, both historical and living. We are also actively pursuing collaborations with local performers and artists who reflect the diversity of our Colorado community.

New Video!  Ars Nova Singers presents Stories in the Song, episode 1: “Music in Time of Pandemic.” A brief journey into William Byrd’s Masses, composed during an outbreak of the Second Pandemic of the Bubonic Plague in the 1590s. Ars Nova Artistic Director Thomas Edward Morgan gives a fascinating glimpse in the the context of this extraordinary music. The video includes performances by Ars Nova Singers of the “Agnus Dei” movements from the Mass for 3 Voices and Mass for 5 Voices.

Ars Nova Virtual Choir Project! Ars Nova Singers made this graduation gift for our high school apprentice Ashlyn Spanarella (graduated this spring from Monarch High School in Louisville; will be attending Eastman School of Music in the fall!). Happy and grateful for all who participated. Enjoy!
