“…imaginative program and alert, stylish performances…” – Chicago Classical Review
Wayward Sisters is Beth Wenstrom (baroque violin), Anne Timberlake (recorders),
Anna Steinhoff (baroque cello), and John Lenti (theorbo and guitar). In 2011, Wayward
Sisters won the Early Music America/Naxos recording competition, and will recorded their
debut CD with Naxos during the 2011-2012 season.
Since debuting in 2009, Wayward Sisters has excited and inspired audiences across the
United States, including appearing as Emerging Artists on the Newberry Consort’s 2010-
2011 concert season. Members of Wayward Sisters have studied historical performance
at Oberlin Conservatory, Indiana University, and The Juilliard School.
The name “Wayward Sisters” refers not only to Henry Purcell’s vivid conjuring up of
Shakespeare’s witches, but to the group members’ scattered lives and continuing
commitment to making music together.
