Based in Greater Boston, Lyracle is an early music chamber ensemble whose mission is to illuminate our shared humanity across centuries through historically informed performances that explore the art of accompanying the voice with the viol and tell the stories of historic practitioners of this art.
Lyracle’s narrative, non-composer-centric approach to concert programming has earned it recognition as an emerging ensemble in the field. Lyracle was one of four ensembles selected to participate in the 2020 Early Music America Emerging Artist Showcase and performed at the 58th Conclave of the Viola da Gamba Society of America. Lyracle has also been invited to perform on concert series including Early Music Missouri, Pegasus Rising, GEMS Midtown Concerts, the Long Island Early Music Festival, and the Society for Historically Informed Performance.
Lyracle has performed and coached students at several institutions of higher education, including UNC Chapel Hill and UMass Amherst.
Lyracle has given presentations on their research and curatorial processes at the Low Strings in the Early Americas Online Symposium and at the Sixth-Annual Indiana University Jacobs School Of Music Historical Performance Conference. Lyracle enjoys collaborating with artists and scholars in adjacent fields and in 2022 gave a lecture-recital with historian Barbara Lambert at the Colonial Society of Massachusetts.
Lyracle is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and has received grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Iguana Music Fund.
