Austin-based singer, conductor, and pianist Shari Alise Wilson performs a wide range of repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Demonstrating great versatility and stylistic sensitivity, she has collaborated with a number of ensembles, including Grammy Award-winning Conspirare, Blue Heron, Pegasus Early Music, and the Texas Early Music Project, and she is a founding member of The Crossing, winner of a 2018 Grammy Award (Best Choral Performance) for Gavin Bryars’s The Fifth Century. In 2019, she premiered Julia Wolfe’s Fire in My Mouth with The Crossing and the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center and performed for HBO’s Game of Thrones Final Season Activation in collaboration with The American Red Cross and Giant Spoon. An advocate of new music, she sings with Conspirare’s tour of Considering Matthew Shepard, with notable performances at the Ravinia Festival, LA Ford Amphitheatre, Boston Symphony, and Austin City Limits. Ms. Wilson teaches voice at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Austin and is the organist at Crestview United Methodist Church. This season she will launch Corvidae Ensemble, a women’s ensemble dedicated to exploring music and multi-media forms spanning over four centuries of music, art, dance, and poetry. Shari has sung with Blue Heron for nine seasons and is thrilled to sing with dear friends celebrating Blue Heron’s 20th birthday!
