Solstice, a female vocal ensemble, explores the versatility of the a cappella song, weaving traditional and popular American music, Eastern European folk songs, Italian madrigals, and original a cappella compositions into a strong vocal sound that is richer than the sum of its six voices.

Their repertoire—spanning more than 11 countries and 900 years—is unified by their mission: to sing music written by women and for women's voices. Solstice’s self-titled debut album has earned praise throughout the a cappella and folk music communities.
