These concepts define the essence of Fonema Consort, as we endeavor to bring to light and expand the repertoire of 20th and 21st century works for voice(s) and instruments; and live out our fascination with the exploration of vocal possibilities in music. The complex nature of this repertoire encompasses a vast intersection of disciplines including music, drama, and literature; and requires the ensemble to explore a wide range of performance practices.

Above all, we hope that our audience will join us on this journey at the edge of musical and linguistic discovery. Learn more.
