About Us

Founded in 2004 by choral director Amelia LeClair, award-winning Cappella Clausura is a professional ensemble of vocalists and instrumentalists which brings high-quality performances of music by women into today’s concert halls. We promote the performance of music created by women, which has often languished unheard. Over the past 17 years, we've performed an ever-widening repertoire for enthusiastic audiences in concert halls and churches, as well as academic and virtual settings. Our concerts have included music by Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary composers. We have also been privileged to have had compositions written especially for us by a growing number of living composers.

The core of our ensemble is eight-to-sixteen singers who perform a cappella, as well as with instruments appropriate to the repertoire. Both our singers and players are drawn from Boston’s superb pool of freelancers; they are accomplished professionals who perform widely as soloists and ensemble musicians in Greater Boston and beyond.
