The Suspicious Cheese Lords broaden the global repertoire and listenership of choral music by unearthing forgotten works, breathing new life into familiar pieces, and supporting emerging composers. Specializing in early music, this unique brotherhood’s concerts, liturgies, recordings, and educational programs provide a scholarly yet accessible interpretation of music of all eras, inspiring fans and future musicians alike.
From 1998 to 2006, the Cheese Lords served as the choir in residence for major services at the Franciscan Monastery in Washington, D.C. Additional services credits include the Cathedral of St. Matthew, Church of the Epiphany (G Street), the Church of the Holy Redeemer (Kensington, MD) and Georgetown University’s Dahlgren Chapel.
The ensemble assisted in the developing “An Evening at the Tabbard Inn” an event for the Smithsonian Institution’s Resident Associates program in which the Cheese Lords provided music contemporary to Chauncer’s Canterbury Tales and related to the theme of pilgrimage.
The Lords’ other performance venues have included the Washington National Cathedral, the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center, the National Gallery of Art, Epiphany Catholic Church (Georgetown), the Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes, Christ Church (La Plata, MD), the Cathedral of St. Thomas More (Arlington, VA), the Old Presbyterian Meeting House (Alexandria, VA), Christendom College (Front Royal, VA).
The Cheese Lords have also had several performances on XM Satellite Radio including regular broadcasts on the Vox Channel. They are currently featured on the Symphony Hall channel.
