Since its founding in 2003 by its conductor, James Jordan, the 40-voice Westminster Williamson Voices has quickly established itself as a voice of composers of our time and has been acclaimed for its creative programming and collaborations with other art forms. Grammophone magazine has described the Westminster Williamson Voices as an ensemble of “intimate and forceful choral artistry,” with tone that is “controlled and silken in sustained phrases as they are vibrantly sonorous in extroverted material.” The American Record Guide in described the ensemble as “without peer.” The choir has premiered more than 30 choral works, several early performances and North American premieres by noted composers. Last season the ensemble also made its debut at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center. The April Concert will feature the New York premiere of Paul Mealor’s Crucifixus.
