|Vocal ensemble, Tapestry, to perform at Museum Sunday|
Tapestry, a vocal ensemble, will perform in the Museum Concert Series at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 22, in the Museum galleries. Tapestry, founded in 1995, has established an international reputation for its bold conceptual programming yhat combines medieval and traditional repertory with contemporary compositions. The Museum Concert Series, founded in 1990, is a celebration of classical music that brings performers of international repute to the Museum. It is the oldest chamber concert series in the region and draws a mixed audience of all ages. Mayville State University shares the series with the Museum, hosting their performance on Monday evenings.
Tapestry has won numerous awards, including WQXR and Chamber Music America’s Recording of the Year and, most recently, the prestigious Echo Klassik Prize for their recording, "Sapphire Night."
Based in Boston, the ensemble made its concert debut in its hometown with performances of Steve Reich’s "Tehillim" at Jordan Hall; additional Boston appearances include the Celebrity Series, Harvard, Radcliffe, and Sanders Theater.
Other Tapestry engagements include the festivals at Utrecht, Maastricht, Flanders, Regensburg, the Hannover A Capella Woche, Le Donne in Musica Rome, Festival de Musique Sacree of Quebec, Le Domaine Forget, the Sacred Music Festival and the International Medieval Congress of Kalamazoo, as well as the Hildegard von Bingen Symposium at the University of Oregon, Da Camera of Houston series, Tucson Early Music Society, Cleveland’s Museum Concerts, New York City's Frick Collection, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Rockefeller University, Stanford University, and many others.

Committed classical music lovers also contribute an additional $50 on top of their season ticket to become sponsors who share in the cost of bringing great music to the community.
