Synergy vocals

Synergy Vocals is a unique pool of voices covering a broad spectrum of musical genres and working primarily on microphone. Highly respected for its seamless vocal blend, rhythmic precision and dynamic performances, the team collaborates regularly with Steve Reich & Musicians, Ensemble Modern, Ictus, Asko|Schönberg and the London Sinfonietta.

Synergy has performed all over the world with many other outstanding orchestras and ensembles, including the BBC Symphony, Boston Symphony, Brooklyn Philharmonic and Chicago Symphony Orchestras, The Colin Currie Group, Ensemble InterContemporain, the London Symphony and LA Philharmonic Orchestras, Nexus, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Percussion Claviers de Lyon, St Louis Symphony Orchestra, Tempo Reale Ensemble and the Smith Quartet; and in collaboration with the Royal Ballet (UK), Mark Baldwin (UK), Rosas (Belgium) and the Opéra de Paris dance companies.

Synergy Vocals is well-known for its close association with Steve Reich, but the group is also a favourite of Steven Mackey, Louis Andriessen and the Bang on a Can composers of New York. A great exponent of the works of the late Luciano Berio, Synergy was invited to the fourtieth anniversary celebration of Berio’s Sinfonia in New York, where the group performed it at the Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic, for whom the piece was written. They sang the UK premiere of Nono’s monumental Prometeo at London’s Southbank Centre, and the world premiere of Andriessen’s video opera La Commedia, recently relaunched in concert version for the first US performances in Walt Disney Hall (LA) and Carnegie Hall (New York).

Synergy Vocals has undertaken educational and outreach projects for The Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, Princeton University, Eastman College, Oberlin College and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, both coaching vocal ensembles and working with composers in the creation of new works involving singers. Micaela Haslam also coaches instrumental ensembles for Steve Reich in the preparation of his Music for 18 Musicians.

The group’s recordings include Steven Mackey’s Dreamhouse with BMOP/Gil Rose; Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians with Ensemble Modern; Tehillim with LA Philharmonic/Stefan Asbury, Three Tales with Steve Reich & Musicians/Brad Lubman; Louis Andriessen’s De Staat with LA Philharmonic/Stefan Asbury; and Karl Jenkins’ Imagined Oceans. Synergy is also featured on several television advertisements and film soundtracks including Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Nanny McPhee, V for Vendetta and The Secret of Moonacre.
