The Suspicious Cheese Lords strive to broaden the global repertoire and listenership of choral music by unearthing forgotten works, breathing new life into familiar pieces, and by creating new compositions of their own. Specializing in early music, this unique brotherhood’s recordings, concerts, workshops, and liturgies provide a scholarly yet accessible interpretation of music from all ages, educating and inspiring fans and future musicians alike. Based in Washington, D.C., their performance venues have included the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, and the Library of Congress.

The Washington Post has described their performance as “genuinely beautiful…rapturous musicmaking.” The Cheese Lords have been awarded two of the Washington Area Music Association’s “Wammies,” for Best New Artist and Best Choral Group. They have participated in workshops with Tallis Scholars founding member Philip Cave, and have given private performances for the Kennedy Center’s Board of Trustees, and His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI and a group of national interreligious leaders. They have participated in concert series and educational programs from the Midwest to the Atlantic Seaboard, including two fringe concerts at the Boston Early Music Festival (2015 and 2023).  The Cheese Lords have released five world-premiere CDs, and been broadcast by early music programs Millennium of Music and Harmonia.
