Ars Lyrica Nominated for 2011 Grammy Award

Houston baroque ensemble Ars Lyrica has been nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award (in the opera category) for its world-premiere recording of J.A. Hasse's "Marc Antonio e Cleopatra."

It's also the only U.S. recording nominated in the category. Nice!

The other nominees in Best Opera Recording:

Berg: "Lulu" (Orchestra Of The Royal Opera House)

Saariaho: "L'Amour De Loin" (Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin; Rundfunkchor Berlin)

Shchedrin: "The Enchanted Wanderer" (Orchestra Of The Mariinsky Theatre; Chorus Of The Mariinsky Theatre)

Sullivan: "Ivanhoe" (BBC National Orchestra Of Wales; Adrian Partington Singers)

Well it's obvious to us. Ars Lyrica has it in the bag! (We have no idea what we're talking about.)

But seriously, big congrats to Ars Lyrica Houston!
