Paragraph about the ensemble: 
Founded in 1957 by musicologist Newell Jenkins, The Clarion Society is one of the country’s leading period instrument orchestras and professional vocal ensembles. In 2006, Clarion was reborn under the artistic directorship of young American conductor Steven Fox. Since the start of Fox's tenure, the Clarion Orchestra and the Clarion Choir have performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Miller Theatre at Columbia University, the Morgan Library, the Aston Magna Festival, and St. Ignatius Loyola in conjunction with the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space series. In 2010 Clarion formally joined forces with another leader in the field, the New York Collegium. Continuing the Collegium’s remarkable legacy is Clarion Collegium Week, an annual week of master classes, lectures, and concerts focusing on the music of a great Baroque composer. Since its revival, Clarion has received critical acclaim in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, BBC Music Magazine, Musical America, and the American Record Guide.
