ABOUT BEDLAM

"Kayleen Sánchez has a lovely voice and she wields it intelligently, seizing dramatic opportunities
presented by both text and music. Laudon Schuett is an intelligent and responsive partner, [...] creating dynamic and tasteful accompaniments..."

-  James V. Maiello  |  Fanfare Magazine  

"Two of the finest young early musickers on the circuit - Kayleen Sánchez and Laudon Schuett"

-  Dr. Michael Anderson  |  Artistic Director  |  Schola Antiqua

"It was awesome! A beautiful performance and a great learning experience."

-  Dr. Jonathan Gary  |  Director  |  UMHB Conservatory of Music

"Kayleen Sánchez’s performance... was both deeply moving and extraordinarily precise."

-  Dr. David M. Gordon  |  Composer  |  Wheaton College Conservatory of Music

"Schuett's rhythmic sense was unparalleled..... a masterful performer..... with impeccable style and accuracy."

-  Classical Voice of North Carolina

"The magical duo BEDLAM" (Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine) is Kayleen Sánchez, soprano, and Laudon Schuett, lute. Bedlam is a 15th and 16th century colloquial term for the Bethlem Royal Hospital in London, England. At the time it was an infamous psychiatric facility and an inspiration for artists and writers living around it. The term Bedlam eventually entered “everyday speech to signify a state of madness, chaos, and the irrational nature of the world” (Andrews et al. 1997, p.1-2, p.130-131). 

Recent engagements include the Phoenix Early Music Society & Arizona State University, Pegasus Early Music, and the Rochester Early Music Festival. BEDLAM has been broadcast on Rochester’s WXXI, WWFM’s “Well-Tempered Baroque”, South Dakota Public Broadcasting, and Arizona PBS. They regularly present masterclasses and lectures at colleges and universities throughout the United States, and have presented at the Eastman Community Music School (NY), Glendale Community College (AZ), UNC Wilmington (NC), and Mary-Hardin Baylor (TX), among others. BEDLAM released its debut album, BEDLAM (Athyr Records) in 2015, and their latest album, Died for Love (Soundset Recordings) was released in June of 2017.
