The Skylark Vocal Ensemble is a chamber choir of professional soloists and music educators from across the United States. Formed in 2011 under the direction of Matthew Guard, Skylark has been described as "a gem... soloists who come together to create a dynamic and inspiring whole". Skylark performs innovative programs that communicate truths about the human condition.
Skylark's mission is threefold:
• Be a unifying and enriching force by delighting audiences with profound a cappella choral music performed at the highest level.
• Provide a forum for world-class musicians to practice their art in an ensemble setting.
• Ensure the future of choral music in society through educational outreach, offering free admission to students and teachers of music, supporting the work of charities that further music education, and inspiring the next generation of professional choral artists."
