Cappella Clausura, Inc. Overview
Our organization speaks to the absence of women’s voices in the history of the arts.
CAPPELLA Clausura is a women's ensemble in Boston which specializes in the music written through the centuries by women in clausurae, that is, in the cloisters. We bring to light works by composers who have struggled to answer the call of the Muse despite considerable and often crippling social taboos, who, in short, composed music for the pure and overwhelming love of it. Each season one of our concerts is a benefit to support issues particular to women. Our goal is to place this amazing music in the standard repertoire while raising money for organizations that help women, and thereby to enhance the lives of women and girls today both spiritually and practically.
highly enthusiastic audiences of 45-100, invitations to perform for several concert series in the NE area as well as colleges and festivals. A nascent outreach to student age audiences to teach the history of women in composition from the 8th century to the present day.
