Comprising some of the finest ensemble and solo singers in the country, Kinnara is one of the nation’s premier professional chamber choirs. Under the direction of J.D. Burnett, who also serves as Associate Director of Choral Activities at the University of Georgia, the choir performs a wide variety of standard choral repertoire from all eras. Kinnara fosters the perpetuity of choral music in American culture by creating space for professional ensemble work. Grounded in the belief that communal singing is inherently connective for singers and listeners, Kinnara crafts exemplary musical experiences that speak to the modern soul.
Now in its twelfth season, Kinnara released its first commercial recorded album, Provenance, in September 2017 on the Affetto label, distributed internationally by Naxos. Including Johannes Brahms’ double choir motets, Fest- und Gedenksprüche, selections from Francis Poulenc’s Sept Chansons, and Alberto Ginastera’s Lamentations of Jeremiah, Provenance is available for streaming on Spotify, and for sale on iTunes and Amazon.
