TENET celebrates its Sixth Anniversary as one of New York’s preeminent vocal ensembles. Under artistic director Jolle Greenleaf, TENET has won acclaim for its innovative programming, virtuosic singing and command of repertoire that spans the Middle Ages to the present with a focus on Renaissance and Baroque repertoire. TENET features distinguished soloists who shine in one-voice-to-a-part singing and as joined voices in small ensembles.

Highlights during TENET’s first five years include appearances at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Festival Casals de Puerto Rico, Yale and Columbia Universities, Berkshire Bach Festival, and many appearances along the Northeast.  TENET has participated in many collaborations with other top notch music ensembles and organizations including Clarion Music Society, Dark Horse Consort, Five Boroughs Music Festival, New York Polyphony, the Sebastians, and many others.

TENET sponsors the highly acclaimed Green Mountain Project performances featuring Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 and other newly reconstructed Vespers by the project’s musical director Scott Metcalfe featuring works by Claudio Monteverdi, Giovanni Gabrieli, Marc-Antoine Charpentier and their contemporaries.
