Lute Society of America – NY Chapter
Ryan Closs is a Long Island based specialist of Historical Plucked Strings Performance. He is a requested performer for Operas, Cantatas, and Orchestras who has gained much attention for his work with dancers, singers, and chamber ensembles. Ryan’s duties as an outreach soloist for the Lute Society of America have earned him a title as the head of its NY chapter. His outreach performances have contributed to the growing knowledge and appreciation of the Lute, its times, and its music, a mission he continues and expands upon with his own period ensembles ‘4&20Strings’ and ‘Early Music Long Island’. In 2022 Ryan and his wife, Mackenzie, began the launch of a pseudo-virtual artistic manifold titled ‘Shoebox Opera’.
