WITNESS (Boston Subscription Series)
Lorelei commissions three new works for women's voices by three brilliant and timely composers: James Kallembach, Shawn Kirchner, and Mary Montgomery Koppel. Modern spirituals by Koppel, Kirchner, Josh Shank, Adam Jacob Simon, and Moira Smiley serve as responses to Kallembach's The Death of Antigone, which parallels ancient martyrdom with 20th century activism. An extension of Lorelei's ongoing "New Americana" initiative (funded by New Music USA in 2014), "Witness" shifts its glance outward toward modern global crises, and offers four re-imaginings of a truly American genre as a vehicle toward global empathy and action.

Past programs of the 2016-17 Season
PART & PARCEL (Boston subscription series)
Inspired by MIT Professor Sherry Turkle's book, Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other, this program examines the recent phenomena of social media and device culture as it overlaps with our experience of live performance. Showcasing individual members of the ensemble as "part/alone," and the ensemble as "parcel/together," Lorelei delivers a candid and diverse program of early and contemporary repertoires that invites audiences and performers alike to consider the necessary intimacy and selflessness of ensemble work, alongside the necessary preservation of the striking individuals within it. Including works from Hildegard von Bingen, Guillaume Du Fay, the Turin Manuscript, Luciano Berio, Kate Soper, Libby Larsen, Jessica Meyer (world premiere), & D.J. Sparr.
