The Polyphonists

Classical Vocal Quartet

About

Formed out of the musical void left by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Polyphonists are a quartet in two households: soprano Amy Broadbent and tenor Matt Hill in DC, and mezzo-soprano Sylvia Leith and bass-baritone Edmund Milly in Baltimore. The word polyphony describes many independent voices interwoven in harmony, and that is our ethos: We are four soloists, but we come together to create music that transcends our individuality. Each Polyphonist brings a lifetime of solo and choral experience to the group, and our repertoire includes classics of the choral canon as well as little-known gems and new compositions.

Music

Our repertoire ranges from early Renaissance music through contemporary composers. We endeavor to highlight living composers, and those who have been historically underrepresented. Some of our favorites so far have been Johannes Brahms, Benjamin Britten, J.S. Bach, Clara and Robert Schumann, Fanny Hensel, Trevor Weston, Edie Hill.
