Director's Welcome Message

I’m thrilled to lead Tactus into a new era as we enter our fourth season! As a veteran educator and Early Music practitioner, it brings me great pleasure to be at the helm of this evolving ensemble at an exciting time of development. We are strengthening our internal organizational structure, public presence, and artistic pursuits. While we look to historically informed performance practices, we will continue sharing our music in accessible and inventive ways. The singers and audience will experience new venues and repertoire, from Medieval chant echoing through the clerestory of cathedrals to early-Baroque polyphony streaming throughout the digital stratosphere. We look forward to new recordings and global travels to carry on the legacy of centuries-old artistry. As we work to refine our technique, we enter the fall with music for renewal. As we continue to reach for ever-higher levels of excellence, we delve into the winter with music for strengthening the soul. As we come into the warmth of the summer, we sing music for the passionate heart. This is an ambitious ensemble of skilled, dedicated, classical musicians, friends, and family. This is Tactus.

-- Jonathon Hampton
