Sheridan College is pleased to welcome the Lorelei Ensemble to the Kinnison Hall stage at Whitney Center for the Arts on Saturday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults, $25 for seniors and $10 for students and can be purchased at the Whitney Center for the Arts Box Office at (307) 675 – 0360 or online at whitneyarts.org.
Heralded for its “warm, lithe, and beautifully blended” sound (The New York Times), and “impeccable musicality” (The 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.
“Lorelei Ensemble’s reputation as interpreters of a varied repertoire is internationally known, but their ability to connect with students as educators and clinicians is also exciting as they will be working with collegiate and student singers while in Sheridan,” said Whitney Center for the Arts Concert Hall and Performing Arts Coordinator Dr. Ryan Landis.
The ensemble works to bring the highest quality music making to the attention of young artists, teachers, audience members, and composers, showcasing a repertoire that is not only fresh and expanding, but also with an aim to raise expectations and reposition women’s vocal ensembles in educational institutions and social constructs.
While in Sheridan, Lorelei Ensemble members will host a workshop with the Sheridan College Chorus and several community children’s ensembles from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturday in the Sheridan College Choir Room.
