The dynamic early music ensemble, The Strangers, was founded in the summer of 2016. What was intended to be a 1 time audition group was built into a contract based Non-Profit ensemble. Using award-winning musicians, The Strangers collaborate with professionals who are involved in the early music community; appearing with such outstanding ensembles as: Music of the Baroque, The Marion Consort, Chicago Bach Project, Haymarket Opera, Grant Park Chorus, and the Bach Week Festival. They have also been featured on concert series produced by The Newberry Consort, Chicago Early Music Festival, Ars Musica Chicago, Live on WFMT, and Early Music at the Barn.
“The Strangers are no stranger to stylish, joyful music-making of the highest order.” ~Kate Young, Collegium Musicum and Founder of Musica Ficta
