Heralded for its "warm, lithe and beautifully blended" sound by The New York Times "impeccable musicality" by The Boston Globe and unfailing display of the "elegance, power, grace and beauty of the human voice" by Boston Music Intelligencer, the Lorelei Ensemble is quickly becoming recognized as a source of some of the most innovative and inventive programming in its hometown of Boston and beyond. A rich and diverse vocal palate defines the consistent delivery of this vocal ensemble of nine women whose musical expertise ranges from early to contemporary with independent careers as soloists and ensemble singers across the globe. Committed to the expansion of the repertoire for women's voices, Lorelei has commissioned and premiered more than 50 works since its founding in 2007, and continues to expose and reinvent early works of the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque repertoires.

While at the Weis Center, they will perform a program called WITNESS which includes:

  • James Kallembach, "Antigone: The Writings of Sophie Scholl and The White Rose Movement"
  • Abbie Betinis, "From Behind the Caravan: Songs of Hâfez"
  • Joshua Shank, "Saro"
  • Mary Montgomery Koppel, "Mother of Exiles"
  • Adam Jacob Simon, "Joys Above His Power"
  • Moira Smiley, "Utopia"
  • Shawn Kirchner, "Rose/Riddle/Rainbow"
