Quire Cleveland provides a vital connection to distant lands and ages past through the human voice. By breathing life into choral works from the Middle Ages, Renaissance and Baroque eras, and beyond — some of which have lain silent for centuries — Quire reveals the universality, timelessness, and humanity of this music.
Members of the ensemble are highly-trained musicians, collectively representing nearly 500 years of choral experience. In addition to being soloists, music directors, and educators at many of the major churches, synagogues, and schools in northeast Ohio, they have sung together in historically-informed ensembles, such as the Early Music Singers at Case Western Reserve University and Apollo’s Singers of Apollo’s Fire.
Under the artistic direction of Ross W. Duffin, Quire Cleveland offers a repertoire spanning nine centuries, with concerts that are “sophisticated yet accessible,” even “ecstasy-inducing” (ClevelandClassical.com). According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, “to hear this professional choir [is] to know something on the order of bliss.”
