Quire Cleveland makes life more harmonious by introducing audiences to music not heard in the modern era — including modern premieres of works newly discovered or reconstructed — breathing life into the music of our shared heritage. Quire provides a vital connection to distant lands and ages past, through the human voice, revealing the timelessness universality of this art. Under the artistic direction of Ross W. Duffin, Quire performs 9 centuries of a cappella repertoire.
