Founded in 2009, Wayward Sisters uses period instruments and historical performance practices to create energetic interpretations of music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Critics have praised Wayward Sisters’ ‘polished and spirited playing’ and ‘alert, stylish performances’ (Chicago Classical Review) and the group has appeared on early music series across the United States. In 2011 Wayward Sisters won the Early Music America/Naxos competition, a nationwide search for new early music talent. In 2010 the Newberry Consort showcased Wayward Sisters on their series as Emerging Artists to watch. Members of Wayward Sisters have studied historical performance at Oberlin Conservatory, Indiana University, and The Juilliard School. The name ‘Wayward Sisters’ refers not only to Henry Purcell’s vivid conjuring of Shakespeare’s witches, but to the group members’ far-flung lives and continuing commitment to making music together.
