Acclaimed as “beautiful” by Vogue, “first-class” by Time Out New York, and “simply one of the best vocal ensembles” by Maine’s Press Herald, GHOSTLIGHT pursues both high-quality musicianship and a comprehensive repertoire, with a commitment to original concert programming and frequent world premieres.
Composer Michael Dellaira is known for his “haunting harmonies” (NewMusicBox.org), “eloquence and sensitivity” (New York Times) and “flair for vocal writing” (ClassicsToday.com).
