Skylark is a premier vocal group—led by Artistic Director Matthew Guard—of leading American vocal soloists, chamber musicians, and music educators, whose dramatic performances have been described as “gripping” (The Times of London). The Boston-based, Grammy-nominated ensemble has released It’s a Long Way, a selection of choral and solo vocal music from the Renaissance to the 21st century, including four world premieres. Guard elaborates: “It’s a Long Way explores our collective experience of living through the 19 months since our last Skylark concert. It has been a time of great disruption, of isolation, of fear, and of loss, but also a time for reflection, for hope, for growth, and for action.”
