After almost 2 full years of distanced virtual events, we are looking forward to being back together in the beautiful Shirley Meeting House sharing songs of the season. We explore the rich history and traditions of the holidays in New England as we share songs by local composers and poets including Carson Cooman, Randall Thompson, Amy F. Burnon, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Robert Frost, and more! 

We are thrilled to once again be joined by guest artist, Naoko Sugiyama on piano.

Ensemble Lyrae

     Inspired by the natural beauty and brilliance of the constellation Lyra, Ensemble Lyrae brings together three uniquely and highly talented musicians. While each shines as a soloist, together, these women form deep connections in performing duets and trios. The pianist and three 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 have been invited to perform  at Boston Public Library's 'Concert in the Courtyard' summer series in the summer of 2020. They are the recent recipients of 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.
