Mixed Voice Choirs

A good mixed choral ensemble has the strengths of both male voice and female voice groups; and the mixed choral ensembles we carry are very good. With repertoires that run most of the way through the last 10 centuries, performing the works of some of the best choral composers throughout the ages, you'll lose yourself in the sonorous, frequently haunting beauty of these international-caliber mixed-voice choirs from Denmark, the UK, Argentina, Cuba and Armenia and elsewhere, including a number of college-based choirs from right here in the U.S.

Western Wind

Since 1969, the internationally acclaimed vocal sextet, The Western Wind, has devoted itself to the special beauty and variety of a cappella music. The Ensemble's repertoire reveals its diverse background - from Renaissance motets to Fifties rock 'n' roll, from medieval carols to Duke Ellington, from complex works by avant-garde composers to the simplest folk melodies.

In addition to maintaining a demanding performance schedule, which has included such venues as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, ArtPark, The Ordway Theater, The Metropolitan Museum, The Frick Museum, The Jewish Museum, Folger Shakespeare Library, Library of Congress, and the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Western Wind regularly conducts Workshops in Ensemble Singing. The workshops, attended by vocalists ranging from novice to professional, address the particular challenges of singing in small, largely un-conducted ensembles.


Westminster Cathedral Choir

Westminster Cathedral Choir is acclaimed as one of the world's great choirs. Since its foundation in 1903 it has occupied a unique and enviable position at the forefront of English church music, not least because of the ground-breaking work of its first Master of Music, Richard Terry, who revived the great works of the English and continental Renaissance composers. The choir's fame grew under Terry as it presented this forgotten music, revolutionising attitudes to the repertoire. Innovation continued under George Malcolm who pioneered the development of the choir's sound along continental lines, resulting in a choir that was truly revolutionary in both what and how it sang. The choir continues these traditions under its present Master of Music, Martin Baker, and it remains the only Catholic Cathedral choir in the world to sing daily Mass and Vespers. More recent holders of the post have included Colin Mawby, Stephen Cleobury, David Hill and James O'Donnell.


Westminster Choir

Setting the standard for choral excellence for 90 years, the Westminster Choir is composed of students at Westminster Choir College, a division of Rider University's Westminster College of the Arts, in Princeton, N.J. It has been the chorus-in-residence for the Spoleto Festival USA since 1977, performing both in concert and as the opera chorus. The ensemble's 2010-2011 season includes a concert tour of Florida, performances at its home in Princeton, a broadcast of Westminster's annual An Evening of Readings and Carols holiday concert and its annual residency at the Spoleto Festival USA.

Its second recording with Maestro Miller, Noel, was released in September. A collection of French Christmas music and sacred works, the recording also features Westminster alumna Jennifer Larmore, the most recorded mezzo-soprano of our era, and organist Ken Cowan, a member of Westminster's faculty. The recording is also the centerpiece of the PRI Radio broadcast Noel - A Christmas from Paris, hosted by Bill McGlaughlin.


World Voices

World Voices was formed in 1996 by Dr. Karle Erickson, Artistic Director & Conductor. An experience in New York City one summer in the late 1950's was the influence that steered him into beginning a musical ensemble that exclusively performs global music. He spent 6 weeks in the Bronx with young people of all races, colors and creeds. He wanted to use music as a means to bring people together, to help get rid of the stereotypes and prejudices, to think outside our own comfortable boxes, and to further open our minds and souls to the fascinating differences and similarities that arise from varying cultural backgrounds. Thus began the choral ensemble identified as "Karle Erickson's Metropolitan Chorale. "


Young People's Chorus of New York City

For more than two decades, the Young People's Chorus of New York City has provided children of all ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds with a unique program of music education and choral performance, while maintaining a model of artistic excellence and harmony that enriches the community.

YPC was founded by YPC Artistic Director Francisco J. Nunez in 1988 and has become one of the most celebrated and influential children's choruses in the world, performing around the globe, releasing acclaimed recordings from across the musical spectrum, and collaborating with many of the most highly regarded composers, performers, and organizations of our time. Through its celebrated Transient Glory series of concerts, publications, and CDs, the chorus has commissioned well over 50 new works from composers that include Pulitzer Prize, Oscar, and MacArthur "genius" grant winners and regularly collaborates with such major artists and institutions as Carnegie Hall, The New York Pops, the Stephen Petronio Dance Company, the Kronos Quartet, and American Ballet Theatre, among many others.
