Triad: Boston's Choral Collective Presents Love Is The Every Concerts

In two performances, Triad: Boston's Choral Collective presents the concert program Love is the every on Saturday, November 17, 8 pm, Melrose Highlands Congregational Church, 355 Franklin Street, Melrose, and Sunday, November 18, 8 pm at Clarendon Hill Presbyterian Church, 155 Powderhouse Boulevard, Somerville.

Love is the every offers a program of new choral music ensemble and solo performances, featuring works by composers Abbie Betinis, Julian Bryson, Emma Daniels, J.D. Frizzell, Jennifer Griffith, Karl Henning, Jorge Andres Ibáñez, Libby Larsen, Charles Turner, Michael J. Veloso and Scott Wheeler. Each work was composed during the last quarter century, many created by composer/singers from within the ensemble and composers local to Boston. Triad gives rising conductors and composers a chance to improve their craft and to work alongside career conductors and composers as colleagues and mentors, essential to the ensemble's mission.

"Triad provides a picture of how I would like our world to engage. We are a group of diverse people who have committed to work together for a greater good: furthering the craft and art of music composition across our region. We pool our resources into building relationships and making great music together," said Dr. Julian Bryson, a founding member of Triad and the group's artistic vice president.

Established in 2014, Triad's unique choral composer/conductor collective format comprises singers into a lively "democratic" style ensemble. The group premieres, performs and commissions new choral works, while mentoring emerging singers, composers and conductors of today's choral music. Each of its singers are independently accomplished, many of whom are professional performing artists and educators, building a unified ensemble that can accomplish the demands of new music performance.

The democratic foundation supports an ensemble with an equal leadership format, where no one member serves as constant artistic director. This structure allows each performer to collaborate by contributing writing, feedback and make decisions about repertoire, many conduct in turn. Triad is dedicated to performing music written within the last 25 years and features both its member composers and local composers from the region. The ensemble prides itself on performing music that is both accessible to its audiences as well as diverse and challenging for singers.

Admission to Love is the every performances is a $10 suggested donation at the door. The performances are approximately 70 minutes in length, including an intermission. A reception will be held immediately following each performance.
