Music you can feel.

What’s in a song?

The music we’re drawn to is many-layered, audacious, and pushes singers to the outer edges of their vocal abilities:

Interweaving lines of harmony illustrating

Polyphony

Whether it was written in the 16th century or the 21st, music that weaves together many vocal textures at once, that celebrates the independence of every voice, is what we’re after.

Concentric quarter circles lines of harmony illustrating

Community

Music that inspires people to gather, to collaborate, to make connections across genres and eras, and to celebrate those qualities that make us human is music we want to perform.

Angular lines culminating at a peak illustrating

Adventure

We understand why Handel’s Messiah is a thing. But it’s not our thing. Music that wanders into uncharted territory, that embraces mystery, that dares listeners to feel and feel deeply—that’s our north star.
