Since its inception, Vox Nova Chamber Choir has performed more than 120 choral works, all from the modern and contemporary choral repertory. The program is comprised of encore performances of some of the choir’s best and most essential works.
The idea of sound as its own element, one that is far less tangible than the four elements (earth, wind, fire, water) that typify our concrete existence on the planet, is made manifest in concert via a balanced program of works that have come to typify Vox Nova’s unique sound and ethos as a performing ensemble: the choir’s niche being modern and contemporary choral repertory.
