Alkemie's spirited performances of medieval music are grounded in historical performance practice and fed by our love of experimentation.
Announcing our 2021-2022 Season!
We are excited to begin our 2021-2022 season with our first live concert in NYC since January 2020! Guest artists Jim Hopkins, Elisa Sutherland, Spiff Wiegand, and Charles Mueller join Tracy Cowart and Sian Ricketts for a program of experimental arrangements of the music of Hildegard von Bingen, played on both new and old instruments. This program also includes lighthearted videos created by the musicians that explore Hildegard's medical and natural writings. If you're not able to attend our live concert on September 12, you can join us for the online broadcast of this program, premiering on September 25 and available to watch On-Demand through October 11.
In October, we return to NYC for a new program of 15th-century French repertoire (Like a Woman) that features feminine and/non-gendered perspectives. That program will take place at St. Luke in the Fields on October 10 and premiere online on November 14. The broadcast is available through December 10.
This spring, we come back to NYC with two more live concerts - a collaboration with Grammy-nominated duo Chapter House performing music inspired by the fables of Marie de France, and an East Coast tour of Verdant Medicine with special guest Shira Kammen. We hope to see you there!

We are grateful to announce that we have been awarded two New York State Council for the Arts Rapid Restart grant to support our live concerts in NYC this fall!
