About ALTERA

 

Ensemble Altera is fast becoming a leading American chamber choir dedicated to bringing thoughtful, engaging, and relevant programs of choral music to in-person and digital audiences at home and around the world. The group is versatile, working on multiple scales, in a wide range of idioms, across the full gamut of medieval to modern to minimalist music. Led by internationally acclaimed countertenor Christopher Lowrey, Altera comes from the Italian word for change, and the ensemble prides itself in its truly transformative approach to music-making.

Our MISSION

 

Ensemble Altera is dedicated to the mission of bringing to both the local and global community a greater awareness of and engagement with choral music and group singing in all its forms. This will principally take the shape of presenting physical and virtual concerts, recording audio and video albums, performing educational outreach in settings such as schools, conferences, and broadcasts, touring throughout the United States and further afield, all in service of not only raising the standards of execution and understanding among artists, but more generally advocating for greater exposure to and appreciation for the indispensable and ennobling beauty of the choral arts.
