Biography

There are two artists by the name of Concordia:

1. Concordia Viol Consort, a British early music chamber group.

2. A melodic hard rock band from Cleveland, Ohio, USA.

Concordia (1): Concordia plays the magical English music of the golden age and a wide range of renaissance and baroque repertoire from Italy, Spain, Germany and France. Concordia often works with guest artists on other instruments and, above all, the human voice, regular collaborators including countertenors Robin Blaze and James Bowman, tenor James Gilchrist, baritone Peter Harvey and soprano Rachel Elliott. Perhaps because of the breadth and appeal of its stimulating programming, which also includes new commissions, contemporary dance and poetry, Concordia is now one of the most active British chamber groups, appearing at the Wigmore Hall, festivals throughout the country and major venues across Europe.

The regular members of Concordia are Mark Levy, Joanna Levine, Emilia Benjamin, Reiko Ichise, Alison McGillivray and Markus Tapio (viols), Elizabeth Kenny (lute) and Gary Cooper (organ & harpsichord).

Mark Levy founded Concordia in 1992 to explore music involving viols of all shapes and sizes. The ensemble has gone on to appear regularly at the major British music festivals and throughout Europe, as well as as at the Wigmore Hall, the Purcell Room and the Queen Elizabeth Hall, where they played in the first Royal Festival Hall Early Music Festival.
