When singer and conductor Anna Atwater first sang in a Concentus Women’s Chorus in 2016 concert, she started at the top, singing in Benjamin Britten's "Ceremony of Carols," one of the pinnacles of the repertoire for women's voices.
"It was spectacular," Atwater says. She immediately joined Concentus. Now, three years later, Atwater is its first new music director since its founding. The ensemble, currently with nineteen members, is devoted to exploring the wide variety of classical music, ranging from medieval chant through contemporary compositions, written specifically for women’s voices.
