About Us

Tapestries of Ohio, Inc. is an ensemble of eleven voices with its members predominantly representing Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana Counties. The ensemble is governed by a board of trustees, consisting of singers from the group and community at-large members. This select and versatile ensemble primarily performs a cappella music from the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Some of the singers perform on period instruments, such as trumpets, recorders, harp, harpsichord, and guitar to provide an enhancement to the ambience of the performances.

Auditions are required for admittance into the ensemble. They are generally held in April if there are any openings. The audition process consists of singing a prepared solo in addition to sight-reading your voice part within another selection chosen by the director. Your voice range will be checked. You will be asked to share your musical experience and/or background with the rest of the ensemble.

The rehearsal season begins at the end of July with weekly rehearsals on Sunday afternoons. They are held in Canfield, Ohio at the United Methodist Church on the square. During the month of November, rehearsals are twice a week. Each singer is expected to be diligent about learning the music and being prepared for each rehearsal. Regular attendance is expected. All music and script is to be memorized. Singers are provided with a period costume, if needed. The Boar's Head Dinners are held the first two weekends of December in Warren, Ohio and attendance is required.
