[PAST EVENT] The Ewell Concert Series 2021 - 2022 Season Presents Eya Medieval Music
Access & Features
- Open to the public
Eya (pronounced “AYE-ah”) is a Latin exclamation of sacred joy.
Leading from the heart, Eya is an award-winning and pioneering collaborative organization specializing in medieval music through a feminine lens. Formed in 2010 and directed by Allison Mondel, Eya is building a global presence through performance, community singing, educational opportunities, sheet music resources, outreach programs and more.
Eya has performed at many distinguished venues including the National Gallery of Art, The Music Center at Strathmore, Washington National Cathedral and Dumbarton Oaks, as well as appearances at numerous colleges, universities and concert series across the United States. Eya recently collaborated with The Amra Project (based at Trinity College Dublin), presenting rare medieval Irish music dedicated to Irish saints.
Eya has been featured on Voice of America radio and NPR (Millennium of Music, Harmonia Early Music), and is the recipient of the 2013 Greater DC Choral Excellence Award for "Best Specialty Group: Early Music." They have two recordings, including the US-premiere of The Three Marys (2018).
