Blue Heron, directed by Scott Metcalfe, is a professional vocal ensemble that has been acclaimed by The Boston Globe as "one of the Boston music community's indispensables". Alex Ross of The New Yorker praises "singing that is both precise and fluid, immaculate and alive". Combining a commitment to vivid live performance with the study of original source materials and historical performance practices, Blue Heron ranges over a wide and fascinating repertoire, attempting to bring the highest level of expressive intensity and communication to listeners in concert. Founded in 1999, Blue Heron presents a concert series each year in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and has toured across the nation. It has released six CDs to date, with a seventh due in 2017. Sets the standard for the presentation of Renaissance vocal music. (The Boston Globe) There is always something in this choir to make you listen more deeply... [Blue Heron is] a fantastic model for the fully-realized potential of early music performance in the 21st century. (Boston Musical Intelligencer)
