The Motet Singers—a women's a cappella vocal ensemble

The Motet Singers is a 11-voice women’s a cappella vocal ensemble based in Eugene, Oregon.   The group performs a wide variety of repertoire ranging from Renaissance sacred and secular pieces, medieval chant, contemporary motets, international carols, and folk and world music to light jazz and popular songs.   The ensemble, with their eclectic signature blend of a cappella music for women’s voices, has built a loyal following in the Eugene-Springfield area.   A registered 501(c)(3) non-profit and member organization of the Oregon Cultural Trust, the Motet Singers recently celebrated their 20th anniversary.
