About Sing We Enchanted
For the past twenty-one years, Sing We Enchanted (SWE) has performed in numerous venues across the tri-state area as an a cappella vocal ensemble. The ensemble is drawn to performing music of the Renaissance and Baroque, as well as American repertoire. In December of 2004, SWE released a Christmas CD entitled, “A Sing We Enchanted Christmas” and has plans to record a new CD next season. Previously, the ensemble recorded a CD of favorite madrigal selections: “The Early Years: Songs of the Renaissance.” Sing We Enchanted is committed to performing old and new a cappella musical gems that are typically not widely performed. SWE also performs for community causes; most recently having participated in a COPD fundraiser at the Museum of Natural History; a healing concert in Newtown, CT; and for causes relating to family survivors of 9/11 in Pleasantville, NY.
Sing We Enchanted ensemble: Nell Macdonald, artistic director, mezzo soprano; Randi Alberino, mezzo soprano; Kevin Dyal, bass/alto; David Eggers, tenor; Jean Garner, soprano; Erik-Peter Mortensen, baritone; Lauren Palazolo, soprano; Laurie Thomashow, soprano.
SWE is supported, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
