The Clarion Choir

One of the country’s leading professional vocal ensembles, The Clarion Choir has performed on some of the greatest stages of North America and Europe. The group was featured on PBS’s NYC-Arts program in 2014, and their debut recording released August 2016, received a 2017 GRAMMY® nomination for Best Choral Performance, and a nomination for the BBC Music Magazine Choral Award in England. The Choir's Lincoln Center debut at the 2011 White Light Festival was described by The Wall Street Journal as 'superb…the choristers sang with purity of tone and ensemble precision.'In 2014, the choir gave the New York premiere of Passion Week by Maximilian Steinberg, praised as ‘a stunning performance’ by The New York Times. And in October 2016, the Choir premiered this same work in Moscow and St. Petersburg, where it was written in 1923, and in London. The Russian premiere, made possible by the United States Department of State, was hailed on Russian television (Vesti Rossiya 24) as 'one of the best examples of cooperation between our countries;' and the London performance at the Royal Academy of Music was called 'a beautiful UK premiere... expertly paced by the conductor Steven Fox, the singing was fluid and full of light and shade' by The Times (UK).
