San Francisco Performances [Canceled] Trio Mediaeval, vocals

Trio Mediaeval is not just for the dark ages anymore. This "highwire vocal act" of three Norwegian women can sing anything-and they do-from ancient to contemporary music with a cappella flair and intense vocal command. Their program embraces a millennium of music from the middle ages to contemporary works created especially for them.

The trio's core repertoire features sacred monophonic and polyphonic medieval music from England, Italy and France, contemporary works written for the ensemble, as well as traditional Norwegian, Swedish and Icelandic ballads and songs, mostly arranged by the group members. During the last eight years, the trio has developed exciting collaborations with both individual musicians as well as larger ensembles/orchestras.

Trio Mediaval's first CD on ECM Records, Words of the Angel, immediately reached Billboard's Top 10 Bestseller list and was made the Stereophile "Recording of the Month" in April 2002.

Trio Mediaval has performed throughout Europe in a variety of venues: churches, cathedrals, monasteries, farms, clubs, industrial spaces, museums as well as prestigious halls such as Oslo Concert Hall, Bozar in Brussels, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, London's Wigmore Hall and the Vienna Konzerthaus. The group made its US debut in 2003. Since that first appearance, the trio has embarked on multiple North American tours, performing in 31 states, in cities across the continent. Highlights include concerts in New York's Carnegie Hall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the National Cathedral in Washington D.C., the Kennedy Center, engagements at San Francisco Performances and Spivey Hall, and broadcasts on American Public Media's Saint Paul Sunday and Performance Today. In Asia, the trio has performed in Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea.
