Known for its remarkable sense of ensemble, Parthenia is presented in concerts across America, and produces its own lively and distinguished concert series in New York City, collaborating regularly with the world's foremost early music specialists and has been featured on radio and television and in prestigious festivals and series including Bargemusic, Music Before 1800, Maverick Concerts and the Regensburg Tage Alter Musik.
