Praised for a “rich, natural sound that’s larger and more complex than the sum of its parts,” (National Public RadioNew York Polyphony is one of the foremost vocal chamber ensembles active today. The four men, “singers of superb musicianship and vocal allure,” (The New Yorker) give a vibrant, modern voice to repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant to cutting-edge modern compositions. Their dedication to innovative programming, as well as a focus on rare and rediscovered Renaissance and Medieval works, has not only earned New York Polyphony two Grammy nominations and wide acclaim, but also helped to move early music into the classical mainstream. New York Polyphony tours extensively, participating in major concert series and festivals around the world. Noteworthy engagements include debut performances at London’s Wigmore Hall and The Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, residencies at Dartmouth College and Stanford University, concerts under the aegis of the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht (Netherlands), and the European premiere of the Missa Charles Darwin.
