I THE SIREN - - 402-208-1278

The only ensemble of its kind, I the Siren continues to redefine chamber music

performance art. Its evocative name is inspired by the alluring mythological creatures,

with each Siren member channeling their mythical, alluring, and irresistible sound. The

collective brings a depth of experience, enabling an explorative musical style, and the

forging of a new career model.

Only a handful of compositions exist for our unique ensemble, and as a result, the

collaborative actively records, arranges and commissions repertoire. Most recently, the

trio premiered a set of three songs by New York based composer Martin Hennessy,

juxtaposed with an arrangement of Zwei Gesänge, Op. 91 by Johannes Brahms (mezzosoprano,

English horn and piano). Others premieres include, Anthony D’Onofrio’s

Postcards, featuring poems of Nebraska poet-laureate, Ted Kooser, and Jodi Goble’s

Eurydice (by H.D.) at Iowa State University.

Our focus on sacred music includes musical bookends: the work of J.S. Bach, and Johann

David Heinichen with to the modern-day compositional work of Alyssa Morris, Assistant

Professor of Oboe at Kansas Sate University. Her work Chrysalis, follows the life cycle

of a caterpillar, paralleling the spiritual joinery of an individual, spiritual death and

affliction, closing with the praise-filled hymn Lasst uns erfreuen, by Friedrich Spee,


Community engagement, and outreach are key for I the Siren. Committed educators,

Siren members love working with a wide variety of audiences. Past recital venues

include a number of retirement communities across the country, Augustana Lutheran

Concert Series, College of St. Mary, Petite Musique Concert Series, and the MusForum

national conference. Our programming initiatives include, Women and Poetry in Music,

Literary Inspiration, and Chamber Music with a Voice - Commissioning New Music.

Over the course of its fifteen-year career, I the Siren has performed throughout the United

States, including appearances at Omaha Under the Radar festival, and the UNK New

Music Festival. The trio has held residencies at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute (2014),

and the University of Nebraska Omaha (2012 - 2017). Upcoming engagements include,

the Cathedral Arts Project recital series, and the Vespers Series in early 2018.
