Tapestry Vocal Ensemble was founded in 1995 by Laurie Monahan, Cristi Catt, and Daniela Tošic and has established an international reputation for its bold conceptual programming which combines medieval and traditional repertory with contemporary compositions. Tapestry has won numerous awards, including WQXR and Chamber Music America's Recording of the Year and the prestigious Echo Klassik Prize for their recording Sapphire Night.
Based in Boston, the ensemble made its concert debut in its hometown with performances of Steve Reich's Tehillim at Jordan Hall; additional Boston appearances include the Celebrity Series, Harvard, Radcliffe, and Sanders Theater. Other Tapestry engagements include the festivals at Utrecht, Maastricht, Flanders, Regensburg, the Hannover A Capella Woche, Donne in Musica, Rome, Festival International des Musiques Sacrées de Québec, Le Domaine Forget, the Sacred Music Festival, Banco Republico sponsored tour of Colombia and the International Medieval Congress of Kalamazoo, as well as the Hildegard von Bingen Symposium at the University of Oregon, Da Camera of Houston series, Tucson Early Music Society, Cleveland's Museum Concerts, New York City's Frick Collection, Metropolitan Museum of Art and Rockefeller University, Stanford University, Stanford, and many others.

Tapestry often designs specific concerts for venues. One of their recent programs, Starry Night, ,premiered at the Wilson Observatory in LA . Kelly Garrison, General Director of the Da Camera had this to say of the concert: "Tapestry was nothing short of BRILLIANT. Their programming and performance was incredible. It's in my Top 10 Chamber Music in Historic Sites concert experiences pairing 'site and sound'." For this exploration of the Night Sky, Tapestry brings together gorgeous music and imagery for a one-of-a-kind experience weaving together 16th-century Spanish Villancicos with works of Claude Debussy, Hildegard von Bingen, Alan Hovhanness, Ivan Moody and Patricia Van Ness.

Tapestry has made four recordings for Telarc International: Angeli, Celestial Light, Song of Songs, and The Fourth River. Tapestry has made two recordings with German Label MDG: Sapphire Night and Faces of a Woman.
These particular voices, brightly colored, well-focused and agile, caressed the vowel sounds and shaped gorgeous textures...(they) forged a splendid sense of ensemble.
The Washington Post
This is an outstanding performance, such as I have rarely heard.
The performance was a knockout.
