Zenith Ensemble

Extraordinary Music For New England's Wild North Mission At Zenith Ensemble, we believe that every person deserves to experience great music regardless of age, background, or financial circumstances. That’s why our mission involves a deep engagement of the communities in northern New England across social and economic boundaries: for every concert, we will partner with a local youth or community choir who will sing with the professional group for a portion of the concert. In addition, our concerts are pay-what-you-can so that audience members can feel free to give as they are able for an extraordinary musical experience. Our stellar choir, made up of some of the finest professional musicians in the country, is proud to be based in and serve Northern New England. By presenting extraordinary concert and educational programs through the farthest reaches of these three northern-most states, each Zenith Ensemble project is designed to serve both populous and remote communities in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, providing rich cultural and community building experiences for a broad range of audiences. Fee range indicates minimum when part of a multi-venue tour in the same region or timeframe for minimum number of performers (8). Maximum indicates our fee for 24 singers as a one-off performance, ie not part of a tour. Fees negotiable, depending on locations and artistic expectations.
