BAILEY HALL EVENT

Heralded for its “warm, lithe, and beautifully blended” sound (The New York Times), and “impeccable musicality” (Boston Globe), Boston’s Lorelei Ensemble is recognized nationally for its bold, inventive programs. The vocal ensemble comprises nine women whose expertise extends from Medieval to contemporary repertoire, and whose independent careers as soloists and ensemble singers across the globe lend to the rich and diverse palette that defines the ensemble’s “exact, smooth, and stylish” programming (Boston Globe). Under the direction of founder and artistic director Beth Willer, Lorelei has established a remarkable and inspiring artistic vision, curating culturally-relevant and artistically audacious programs that stretch and challenge the expectations of artists and audiences alike.

someone will remember us

Sappho, trans. Anne Carson
