Still WE Rise: Changing HERstory

Ensemble Lyrae’s program “Still WE Rise: Changing HERstory,” is rising from the ashes of March 2020 and is finally coming to life! This concert explores the theme of women throughout history who have persisted in the face of obstacles. It celebrates those who have spoken up, risen up, fought for what is right, and paved the way for others by changing the course of history. Works include the stories and/or words of women such as Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Malala Yousafzai, Abigail Adams, Louisa May Alcott, and Anne Frank, among many others. The program also includes a set of suffragette songs, never taking for granted our fundamental right to vote.

Ensemble Lyrae

     Inspired by the natural beauty and brilliance of the constellation Lyra, Ensemble Lyrae brings together four uniquely and highly talented musicians. While each shines as a soloist, together, these women form deep connections in performing quartets and trios. The pianist and four vocalists of Ensemble Lyrae seek to illuminate musical works often unknown or under-played. They also premiere cutting-edge pieces written specifically for the Ensemble and their remarkable sound.

     Whether performing in a spacious concert hall or a more intimate salon-style setting at home, these captivating Boston-based musicians enliven the audience's senses, engage their imaginations, and invite them to live in a world of timeless beautiful sound. Ensemble Lyrae has performed on the Music at Norway Pond Concert Series and Music at Whitehead Series and were invited to perform at Boston Public Library's 'Concert in the Courtyard' summer series in the summer of 2020. They received a 2019 Medford Arts Council Grant and Mass Cultural Council Grant, which allowed them to bring their program "Nevertheless, She Persisted" to a private audience at the Medford Council on Aging in June 2019. In December 2022, they were featured performers for 'Christmas at Mechanics' at the famed Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA.
