Voyage Sonique: a period chamber ensemble
Voyage Sonique is a period ensemble devoted to historical performance of baroque music. The founding members – Juilliard alumni – met during their studies at The Juilliard School, forming the ensemble after discovering a tight-knit friendship and united passion and playing style. Currently in their second season as an ensemble, Voyage Sonique has already experienced a promising start including featured performances with GEMS (Gotham Early Music Scene, Inc.) on their Midtown Concert Series. They are an Early Music America Emerging Artist, most recently performing at the Bloomington Early Music Festival in Auer Hall. In a recent review from Peter Jacobi at The Herald, they were praised as having “...strong interpretive inclinations: a more formal yet intimate Sunday concert feel for Leclair’s Trio Sonata No. 1 in D Minor; a dreamy nature in Couperin’s “Le Parnasse ou L’apothetique de Corelli”; a haunting quality in Marais’ Chaconne from “Semele” and subtleties of presentation in Couperin’s Les Concerts Royaux No. 4. All were performed superbly; the musicians [of Voyage Sonique] really appeared to belong.”
In the upcoming seasons, Voyage Sonique is invited into residency at prestigious Avaloch Farm Institute to prepare for international competition, and for their debut recording album.
