Biographie Alkemie

is passionate about exploring and celebrating the vibrant and timeless sounds of the past. Our musical journey transports us to the enchanting world of medieval court and folk music, and we are fervently committed to dismantling the barriers that have traditionally separated these two domains from each other and from the present.

Founded in 2013, Alkemie calls Brooklyn home, but our music knows no bounds. In addition to our New York City concert series, we've had the privilege of gracing stages at esteemed events like the Amherst Early Music Festival, Arizona Early Music Society, Cambridge Society for Early Music, Capitol Early Music Series, Five Boroughs Music Festival, Johns Hopkins Program in Arts, Humanities & Health, Music Before 1800, and San Francisco Early Music.

Equally passionate about recording, we curated, composed, and recorded music for the video game Pentiment, and will be releasing multiple new albums in the 2023-24 season including the much-anticipated "A Fine Companion," a collaborative endeavor with our sister ensemble, Freelance Nun.

Alkemie has been in residence at Fairmont State University and members have designed workshops and educational outreach programs for the Capitol Early Music Series, Ramaz High School (NYC), Fordham University, Case Western Reserve University, the Strathmore Arts Center, Amherst Early Music Festival, Pinewoods, the Baroque Performance Institute at Oberlin, and through the Early Music Access Project.

Time travel with us to look at our [current day] future through the telescope of the past and be inspired by alternative realities — we can't wait to share this journey with you!
