2021-2022: Our CHRYSALIS Season
A Message from Our Artistic Director, Amelia LeClair
After 21 months without in-person concerts, I had plenty of time to think about what our re-emergence would look like. With our CHRYSALIS season, we have rededicated ourselves to our mission of uplifting marginalized members of the musical world and are challenging ourselves to take an intersectional approach to our work. By partnering with new and existing members of our community and making space for conversation and collaboration, we are confident that our ensemble will come back bigger, bolder, and more beautiful than ever before.
We're so glad to be sharing this work with you. Thank you, and enjoy the concert!

We are most grateful to Dr. John Perkins for allowing us to use his Finale version of Lili Boulanger’s Psalm 130 as the basis for this reduction.
All of Cappella Clausura’s work and performances take place on Indigenous Lands. As an ensemble based in the Greater Boston area, we are on the traditional and ancestral homeland of the Massachusett, Pawtucket, Pokanoket, and Wampanoag Nations. We make this acknowledgement to offer recognition and respect to the original inhabitants of this place and to their descendants today, especially since the Indigenous history of this area has been erased for four hundred years. We ask our audiences to join us as we continue to learn about the history of this land and provide support for Indigenous communities.
Thank You to the Sponsors of Psalms & Requiems
