Skylark is a premier vocal ensemble of leading American vocal soloists, chamber musicians, and music educators. Skylark strives to set the standard for innovative, engaging, well-researched, and dramatically presented programs that re-define the choral experience for audiences and singers alike.
Skylark’s music has been described as “sublimely beautiful” (Opera Obsession), “engrossing…reaches in through the ribs and grips the vitals” (Q2/WQXR NY), and enough to “leave a hardened critic near tears” (Boston Music Intelligencer). With “some of Boston’s best singers” (Boston Globe), the voices of Skylark “can sway you softly into calm and then all but throw you across the room with sheer harmonic force” (Thought Catalog). Since its founding in 2011 in Atlanta and Boston, Skylark has branched out to perform its masterful programs in museums, concert halls, and churches across the United States.
