Whether the stark beauty of an 11th century chant, the rich harmonic language of a contemporary Irish work or the rusticism of a Sacred Harp tune, Angelus finds its voice in the wide range of sacred works it performs. Completely unique among American high school ensembles, Angelus is dedicated to the performance of sacred music of varied religious
traditions and historical periods and is comprised of six young women from the Mt. Vernon Senior High School Fine Arts Academy (Mt. Vernon, IN).
Since its founding in 2008, the ensemble has performed over one hundred concerts in nineteen states including performances in Chicago, Dallas, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington DC. The ensemble has also been featured on Minnesota Public Radio, “Celtic Connections” on National Public Radio and “Song from Ireland” in the Netherlands. In April of 2016, they made their Lincoln Center debut as featured performers in Christopher Tin’s Grammy winning song cycle “Calling All Dawns”.
