Paragraph about the ensemble: 
The ensemble Armonia Celeste (Italian for “heavenly harmony”) brings the music of the Italian Renaissance and early Baroque eras vividly to life for audiences across America. With three beautiful female voices singing in close harmony accompanied by plucked-string period instruments, the musicians of Armonia Celeste infuse their historically informed performances with unforgettable passion and joy. Each member of the ensemble is a highly experienced solo performer in his or her own right; together, the musicians create an unforgettable combination of varied vocal and instrumental colors, florid ornamentation, touching expressiveness, and a notable passion for this repertoire. Armonia Celeste is currently one of five finalists in the prestigious Naxos/Early Music America recording competition. Its choice from an original applicant pool of a hundred applicants is a testament to its position as one of the outstanding new early music ensembles in North America, a conclusion already reached by their enthusiastic audiences.
