2020-2021 Virtual Season Announcement  





      In March, we were in the thick of preparations for our "Still We Rise" concert, with literally weeks to go before the concert went up. Then Covid-19 descended upon the United States, and our plans quickly shifted. We observed the unfolding events, putting aside our dreams of performing that powerful program, at least for the foreseeable future.

     The past six months have given us time to reflect on the importance of health, community and the gift of music, as well as ponder how to continue to bring music and thoughtful programing to our audiences. From our quiet reflection, we offer some musings by Ensemble Lyrae.

     As we navigate a new normal, Ensemble Lyrae explores how we can connect to our audiences in a safe way, whether through virtual events and forums, socially distant concerts, or simply sharing some of our most beloved music through archived recordings. We know that the power of music reaches beyond the limitations we currently face. We know that there will always be a place for finding peace, comfort and inspiration in beautiful music, meaningful messages and thoughtful words. Please visit our 2020-2021 Season page to find out more aboutour exciting and unusual upcoming virtual season. 

      Stay connected through our Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube accounts. We'll keep you updated about how, when and where you can hear us! And if you haven't yet, sign up for email updates to get the full scoop. Sometimes we'll reach you through your screens, sometimes from our archives, and hopefully, sometime in the not too distant future, in a socially distant, safe, outdoor setting!

     Thank you for your continued support during these uncertain times. We miss you and can't wait to connect with you in whatever shape or form that takes in the coming months!
