Singing together as an a capella quartet for the first time ever in Brookings, Oregon, these four meshed their experience as soloists and ensemble artists into a finely crafted performance after just one rehearsal. How did they do it? According to Brenna Wells, they are very comfortable singing together and each "just knows" what the others are about to do.
In addition to their work in opera, chamber music and symphony concerts and musical theater, all four are either members of the Lorelei Ensemble or have been in the past.
The Earhart Quartet thrilled one of the largest audiences ever at a Brookings -Harbor Friends of Music concert. Only the Vienna Boys Choir drew a bigger crowd.
The a capella quartet arrived vocally before they took the stage. Their alluring voices flowed from the rear through the audience and filled the vast space of the hall to overflowing with rich melodic tones.
Christina English is a versatile mezzo-soprano with an impressive compilation of accomplishments.
