About the Chamber Series Concert
In 2012, the classical styling chamber concerts started at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. The free quarterly concerts brought quality classical music to the Fort Atkinson Community. These concerts were made possible by the support of the patrons, business sponsors and freewill donations. In 2018, the Chamber Series Concerts moved to the Fort Atkinson Club Community Center as it continues to grow in range and attendance.
ABOUT QUINCE ENSEMBLE
Singing with the precision and flexibility of modern chamber musicians, Quince Ensemble is changing the paradigm of contemporary vocal music. Described as "the Anonymous 4 of new music" by Opera News, Quince continually pushes the boundaries of vocal ensemble literature.
As dedicated advocates of new music, Quince regularly commissions new works, providing wider exposure for the music of living composers. They recently launched the Quince New Music Commissioning Fund, a fund to grow the repertoire for women and treble voices. Quince has released three studio albums, Realign the Time, Hushers, and Motherland, all available on iTunes, CD Baby, Spotify, and Amazon.
In 2016, Quince was featured on the KODY Festival Lublin, Poland in collaboration with David Lang and Beth Morrison Projects. They have also appeared on the Outpost Concert Series, the Philip Glass: Music with Friends concert at the Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, Alia Musica, and the SONiC Festival in New York. During the 2018-19 season, they will collaborate with International Contemporary Ensemble, Lincoln Center, Linfield University, Vespers Concert Series, Kamraton Ensemble, Connecticut Summerfest, and UC Berkeley, to name a few.
Comprised of vocalists Liz Pearse (soprano), Kayleigh Butcher (mezzo soprano), Amanda DeBoer Bartlett (soprano), and Carrie Henneman Shaw (soprano), Quince thrives on unique musical challenges and genre-bending contemporary repertoire.
