BIOGRAPHY

Eya (pronounced “EH-yah”) is a Latin exclamation of sacred joy.

Leading from the heart and pointing to the Divine, Eya is an award-winning and pioneering women's vocal ensemble specializing in medieval music. Eya's artistic vision is to weave together luminous early music with timeless stories that surround women's identity, viewpoints, and experience. Formed in 2010 and celebrating its tenth anniversary season, Eya is building a global community through unique offerings, including singing and learning opportunities, sheet music resources, workshops, and outreach programs.

Eya has performed at many distinguished venues including the National Gallery of Art, The Music Center at Strathmore, Washington National Cathedral, and Dumbarton Oaks, as well as performances and workshops at numerous colleges, universities, and concert series across the United States. The ensemble has recently collaborated with The Amra Project (based at Trinity College Dublin) as its sole U.S. partner, presenting rare medieval Irish music dedicated to Irish saints.

Eya has been featured on Voice of America radio and NPR (Millennium of Music, Harmonia Early Music), and is the recipient of the 2013 Greater DC Choral Excellence Award for "Best Specialty Group: Early Music." They have two recordings, including the US-premiere of "The Three Marys" (2018).
