Normally, we use ticket sales and donations collected from our performances to continue to pay for singers of the Byrd Ensemble. Unforunately, COVID has forced us off the stage and into the digital world. We see this as an opportuntiy to deliver you a more intimate version of our work in the comfort of your own home! While we can't see you in person, you can still support our work by making a donation or purchasing a virtual ticket.
