Amarantos Quartet members, Hannah Schroeder Jackson (cello), Meagan McIntyre (violin), Lauren Hastings Genova (violin), and Anna Maria Amoroso-Noyes (viola) embark on a collaboration with singer and songwriter, Sara Hallie Richardson. This collaboration celebrates not just the mutual respect for one another’s musical talents and work, but also the friendship and life-long relationships that are forged through music making.

Since Amarantos came together in Portland, Maine in 2013, the group has performed at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the TEDxDirigo Mavericks and Misfits, The Cold River Radio Show, The Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center, and also regularly throughout Maine.
Richardson has performed with the Portland Symphony Orchestra, the Silverlake Chorus in Los Angeles, and the one and only Kenny Rogers. With influences such as Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, and Bjork, her songs are known for dense vocal harmonies and soaring melodies as well as combining synthetic and acoustic orchestral sounds.

A genre-bending and genre-defining project, the Amarantos Quartet applies sounds to Richardson’s unique and vast songwriting and vocal skills. Each player works tirelessly to arrange, promote, and grow this exciting, dream-come-true enterprise.
