Ensemble Companio’s 2019 concert program, Failed Saints, includes the world premiere of two movements from Sarah Rimkus’s eponymous Failed Saints, Alberto Ginastera’s Lamentations of Jeremiah (his only composition for unaccompanied chorus), and Saunder Choi’s The New Colossus as well as works by Dunphy, Guillaume, Valverde, Runestad, Barnett, Paulus, and others.


A truly wonderful group.  In addition to the technical near-perfection of blend, balance, intonation, diction, and resonant singing, there was an expressiveness so often missing from groups that strive to sing so cleanly.  No safe, boring, pretty sound here.  I was moved by their singing; I felt they believed in what they were doing.

“My favorite will always be sneaking into that church with you singing; the sound was incredible, something I will always carry with me…I don’t think I can fully articulate it.”
