Welcome to Scottish Voices:
What We Do — and What We’ve Done…..
What We Do…..Scottish Voices is a chamber music ensemble, which performs and records music from the Western Classical Tradition: like a string quartet, but constituted of voices, not instruments. However, we often combine forces with various instrumentalists, and some of the instrumentalists who collaborate with us contribute instrumental solo items to our performances and recordings. We are not a choir either (we sing with one voice to a part), although we sometimes combine forces with choirs. The majority of Scottish Voices performers are women. Most of our repertoire is contemporary, ie from the 21st century, although from time to time we also perform music from earlier eras: not excluding the 20th century, and some popular, traditional, “roots” and “multi-cultural” musics, from various parts of the world and in many different languages.
Doing What We Do…..The landing page photo above was taken after the Scottish Voices recital on April 14, 2019, in the Old South Church on Boylston Street in Boston, Massachussetts, in the United States. The performers in the photo are (from left to right): Anne Lewis (mezzo-soprano), Yelena Beriyeva (pianist), Laura Margaret Smith (mezzo-soprano), Myrna Tennant (soprano), Jacqueline Pollauf (harpist) and Alison McNeill (soprano). The photos below show three further and different incarnations of Scottish Voices.
