ModernMedieval Trio of Voices[RESCHEDULED from September 13, 2018 (Hurricane Florence)]

MODERNMEDIEVAL TRIO OF VOICES is an all female ensemble created by Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek, former member of the world renowned vocal quartet Anonymous 4. She is joined by Martha Cluver and Eliza Bagg from the celebrated ensemble Roomful of Teeth to present programs that combine medieval chant and polyphony with new commissions and music from later eras.

ModernMedieval takes the vocal techniques developed by Anonymous 4 for singing this repertoire, and combines them with a fresh approach to programming that introduces this wonderful music to new audiences.

The ensemble recently presented a program entitled The Living Word, which combines several of Hildegard of Bingen’s most celebrated chants with new commissions by some of today’s leading composers, including Joel Phillip Friedman, Daniel Thomas Davis, Caleb Burhans, and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw. This past season, ModernMedieval presented concerts in New York, Washington D.C and Virginia, including a collaboration with Julianna Barwick as part of the Ecstatic Music Festival in NYC that was broadcast live on WNYCNewSoundsLive.

2018-2019 brings exciting collaborations with composers Ben Frost, Angelicia Negron and Juilanna Barwick as part of Liquid Music in MN, residences at Princeton and East Carolina Universities, and concerts in Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and NYC, where the Trio will make its debut at The Cloisters as part of the MetArtsLive series.
