About

Celebrated for their exquisite vocal artistry and virtuosic ensemble singing, the members of the a capella group Anonymous 4 combine their musical, literary, and historical scholarship with contemporary performance to create ingenious programs that interweave exceptional music with poetry and narrative. They return to the Kennedy Center for the first time in four years with “Wolcum Yule,” an entrancing holiday concert featuring Benjamin Britten’s Ceremony of Carols and other works, both old and new, from the British Isles. “Anonymous 4 is a veritable star among early-music groups….In addition to minutely accurate pitch and an almost heavenly blend, they demonstrate an extraordinary mastery of the innate style and personality of these songs” (The Denver Post). Harp virtuoso Alyssa Reit joins the ensemble for music accompanied by Celtic and Medieval harp.
