Sublime works to illuminate and inspire.
We conclude our 2022-2023 season with "Star bright," a concert bursting with music that delves into the mystical and compelling relationship humans have with the distant heavenly lights.
We are thrilled to present a world premiere of "Research" by Carson Cooman, a work commissioned by Ensemble Lyrae. The piece uses text written by Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin (1910–1979), who was Harvard's first female professor, first female chair, and who discovered the components of stars. This concert will also feature another newly commissioned work, "Twinkle," by Joshua Hummel.We'll also share music by Morten Lauridsen, Susan LaBarr, Amy Burnon, Claude Debussy, Jason Robert Brown, and many more.

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.
