Eager for new music from Asteria?
Worry not – we are busy this winter 2016 arranging and recording our 5th CD, an album of medieval English songs from the time of Richard III.
An often overlooked repertoire because of the relative paucity of English sources from this time, these gems will surprise you with their clever melodies and dramatic lyrics. Worth the wait!

"Asteria was wonderful! Their concert was magical and mesmerizing. Their workshop was informative, well organized, and inspiring for my students."
-Mark Cudek, Peabody Conservatory
