Charites is a female vocal trio committed to bringing the art of early composers to life through bold, expressive performances. The group draws on both historical and modern practices to create theatrical spectacles, combining virtuosic singing, movement, and poetry to involve, delight, and move listeners. Charites’ imaginative approach appeals to seasoned audiences, as well as those who are experiencing early music for the first time.
Called a "captivating triad" by Show Business Weekly, Charities has performed at institutions such as Columbia University, Galapagos Art Space, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Juilliard, Boston Early Music Festival (Fringe Concert Series), San Francisco Early Music Society's Berkeley Festival & Exhibition Fringe Festival, University of Utah, CUNY Graduate School and University Center, and Manhattan College. The ensemble has collaborated with Baroque dance/theater troupe Company XIV, performing Brooke's original compositions and arrangements of pop and classical music in the productions Snow White and Le Cirque Feerique.
