Our COVID 40th Season*
* A year+ like no other!
We have greatly missed seeing and singing for you during this difficult time throughout the world. Because the joy of music is such an essential part of healing and keeping us grounded, we offer to our Ensemble family the virtual concerts that we have created especially for you.

NEW - Premiering on Sunday, June 20 at 3:00 p.m., our final video of the season will be In Remembrance: A Commemoration of Those Who Have Died During Covid-19. During the past 15 months, many of us have lost loved ones, but we have had to remember our loved ones without the usual gatherings and hugs to express our sympathies. This video is intended to reflect upon and remember those we have lost, as a memorial and a celebration of their lives. It features a beautiful new composition, In Paradisum, by Z. Randall Stroope.
In the composer's own words: "During the Covid-19 pandemic - like millions of others - I felt helpless, full of unanswered questions, and most of all, profoundly sad for the thousands of families who lost a loved one - a son, a mother, a daughter, a father, a grandparent or someone else in their family or community circle. I wrote this work as a gift to honor those who lost their lives in the pandemic and the families left behind. It is the smallest of contributions, but perhaps will bring comfort and moments of peace."
Enjoy listening to our beloved pianist Bill Epstein throughout the program, which also features the poignant and stunning In Remembrance by Eleanor Daley, based on an equally poignant poem, and Z. Randall Stroope’s uplifting Lux Aeterna. To record the live pieces in this video, the Women’s Ensemble came together in person for the first time since our December 2019 concerts and sang wearing masks.
Please know how much we appreciate your continued support. Thank you and stay well.
