The Quire was founded in April of 1995 by a group of fourteen singers led by Rev. Rick Yramategui. The group’s first public performance was on June 18, 1995 at the annual Iowa City Pride Talent Show. The event was held at Clapp Recital Hall on the campus of the University of Iowa. One of the pieces performed, Words Like Freedom, has become a signature piece for The Quire in the ensuing years.
The Quire’s membership has grown over the years, and has garnered recognition for excellence and variety in their performances.
