Vasari Singers

Vasari Singers, under Jeremy Backhouse, is one of the UK's leading chamber choirs. Now in its 31st year, the choir performs a wide range of repertoire with passion and sensitivity to exacting standards and considerable press acclaim.

Recent reviews of the choir's commission and premiere CD of the oratorio The Cloud of Unknowing by Francis Pott, included "a top flight choir and, moreover, one that is at the top of its form, a performance that goes way beyond the printed page of the score" - MusicWeb International, "passionate and precise" - The Times, and "The Mighty Vasari Singers give it everything they can muster" - The Gramophone.

MusicWeb International's review of recording of Will Todd's Mass in Blue described Vasari as "one of the world's finest choirs". In Gramophone Magazine's November 2005 review of Anthems for the 21st Century, Vasari was described as "a consistently outstanding choir" and "one of the most accomplished small choral groups of our time".


Vesnivka

Vesnivka, founded in 1965 by Halyna Kvitka Kondracki, is an acclaimed and award winning women's choir based in Toronto, Canada. The 40 member choir grew out of the Ukrainian-Canadian community of Toronto and its surrounding area and is considered to be one of the most prominent and respected women's choirs in North America. In 1993, Vesnivka attended its first International Choral Competition in Llangollen, Wales and won first place in the Folk category, competing against 22 world-class choirs.

These include: Larysa Kuzmenko, Zenoby Lawryshyn, Alexander Levkovich, Willi Hwozdetcky and Evhen Stankovich.


Vienna Boys Choir

The Vienna Boys' Choir is one of the oldest boys' choirs existing in the world. For nearly five hundred years they have been a symbol of Austria. A founding document of Maximilian I in 1498 called the first dozen boys to the imperial court as members of the newly formed court music band. Thus he showed his great interest in contemporary musical developments in Burgundy and the Netherlands. Since then the Vienna Boys' Choir has been a fixed attraction in Austrian musical life.

A number of famous musicians have emerged from its ranks. Its first-class training has produced numerous highly qualified vocalists, violinists and pianists. Joseph Haydn, who actually belonged to the Cathedral Choir of St Stephan, sang together with the court choir boys in the chapel of the Hofburg and in the newly built palace of Sch-nbrunn. Franz Schubert's first compositions were written when he was with the court choir boys, always in conflict with his teachers, since he was more interested in music than in getting good marks for his school work.


Vocal Arts Ensemble of Cincinnati

Founded in 1979, for over 40 years VAE has brought the power of spectacular, powerful and thrilling choral performances to audiences of all generations.


Vocalconsort Berlin

The Vocalconsort Berlin was founded in 2003 and, in the same year, had its successful debut at the Innsbruck Festival Week in Claudio Monteverdi's "L'Orfeo" under the direction of Rene Jacobs.

The Berlin based ensemble, whose ambitious members have also been able to gather experience in other internationally active chamber choirs is particularly specialized in early Baroque and Baroque. In addition, the Vocalconsort Berlin presents new interpretations of romantic and contemporary music.

The variability and flexibility of the Vocalconsort's composition, which can range from double quartet to multi-choir performance while at the same time allowing for the inclusion of solo performances, gives the Vocalconsort Berlin the ability to perform both in concert format as well as on the opera and theatrical stage.


VocalEssence

Founded in 1969 under the name Plymouth Music Series, VocalEssence is recognized internationally for innovative exploration of music for voices and instruments. Each year the organization presents an engaging collection of concerts featuring the 130-voice VocalEssence Chorus and its core group, the 32-voice professional mixed chorus called the Ensemble Singers, along with soloists and instrumentalists. There is no organization quite like VocalEssence in its range, variety and quality of performance.

The Plymouth Music Series was founded by Philip Brunelle, now one of Minnesota's most recognized musical entrepreneurs, as an arts outreach program of Plymouth Congregational Church in Minneapolis. The Series immediately established the marks of its future success: world, United States, and Midwest premieres; famous guest artists; commissions of new works (over 115 to date); and a reputation for surprise.


Voces Nordicae

The vocal ensemble Voces Nordicae comes from the scenery of Swedish choral tradition. In 1999 the ensemble was founded by the Danish conductor Lone Larsen and it consists of 16 professional singers. The repertoire of Voces Nordicae is varied, including works from essentially all periods of music history, with special attention to Nordic, contemporary and improvisatory music.

Open minded towards new timbres, Voces Nordicae combines a pleasant light blend with surprising and ventured sounds. Repertoire and programs are selected with great care, and encompass a wide span of musical and human expression. This interesting variation together with the desire to transmit the music through a scenic presence brings attention and curiosity to the audience.

In 2008 Voces Nordicae was selected Choir of the Year in Sweden by Concerts Sweden.

Volti's professional vocalists, under the direction of founder and Artistic Director Robert Geary, are dedicated to the discovery, creation, and performance of new vocal music. The ensemble's mission is to encourage, foster and showcase contemporary American music and composers, and to introduce contemporary vocal music from around the world to local audiences.

>In the fall of 1979, Robert Geary established The San Francisco Chamber Singers, opening that first season with an all-Bach program. Quickly favoring the music of Benjamin Britten, the choir soon began to sharpen its focus on today's music, and by the 1990s was focusing almost exclusively on premieres and commissions by living composers from the U.S. and abroad.


Vox Aurea Choir

Vox Aurea ("The Golden Voice") is a children's choir formed from the special music classes of the city of Jyvaskyla, Finland. The choir consists of 35-45 singers aged 11-17. The conductor of the choir is Sanna Salminen.

Vox Aurea was founded in 1968 and its first conductor was Torsten Lindfors. His successor, Kari Ala-Pollanen, was appointed conductor of the illustrious Tapiola Choir in 1994. Under Pekka Kostiainen since 1994 the choir continued to exel in varied and demanding repertoire the emphasis being on modern works, most of them composed by Pekka Kostiainen.

The singers in Vox Aurea are aged 11-17. They are chosen for the choir after auditioning. There are also two training choirs for younger singers to practise choir singing before joining Vox Aurea.


Vox Musica

Vox Musica, directed by Daniel Paulson, was founded in 2006 in a niche of untapped potential in Sacramento's budding classical music scene. This women's vocal ensemble enjoys the privileged position of nurturing the choral arts by combining outstanding vocal artistry with innovative programming. Vox Musica is committed to excellence in performance of diverse and challenging choral literature for women's voices and is dedicated to promoting new works, including many premiers and commissioned works.


Voz en Punto

This exceptional ensemble, founded by its director Jose Galvan in 1990, has focused its artistic energy on the highly colorful arena of Mexican culture; nevertheless, it is capable of interpreting with equal success a wide variety of music, from pieces of Mexican colonial polyphony from the 16th and 17th centuries, songs in native tongues and/or with African influences, up to folklore and music of living Mexican concert composers. As if this repertoire weren't versatile enough, the group has also presented programs consisting of European composers, including motets and madrigals; Latin-American music, from tangos to Cuban music and Brazilian bossa-nova; negro spirituals, etc., etc.

It is within the context of this great talent, vocal aplomb, charisma, and interpretative flair, in which each member of Voz en Punto places his or her own seal. The end result is an audience which becomes-to quote the group's press notes-"Ecstatic", "On Fire", or "Delirious". Such adjectives would hardly seem to describe a vocal group which achieves its effects without the aid of microphones or other paraphernalia. Voz en Punto is, indeed, the irrefutable proof that the voice is the most glorious instrument which humankind has always had at its disposition.


Washington Men's Camerata

The Washington Men's Camerata was founded by its members in 1984 to perform, promote and preserve the rich legacy of men's choral music. In support of its mission, the Camerata seeks to: 1) present concerts of the highest artistic quality to the widest possible audience; 2) educate young people and generate interest on their part in choral music; 3) collaborate with orchestras, other ensembles and recording companies in performances and recordings of the men's choral repertoire; 4) through the Demetrius Project, our National Repository Library of Men's Choral Music, preserve and share worthy collections of music that are no longer in use; and 5) encourage composers to write music for male chorus by promoting and performing newly composed men's chorus works.


Wells Cathedral Choir

Wells Cathedral Choir has recently been hailed by Gramophone Magazine as 'probably the finest English cathedral choir at the moment' in 'world-class form'.

In December 2010 it was named by an international jury, again of Gramophone Magazine, as the sixth greatest choir in the world and the highest ranking choir with children in the world.

The choir celebrated its 1100th anniversary in 2009: boys first sang at Wells Cathedral in 909 and the full choral tradition dates back over 800 years. In 1994 the choral foundation at Wells was enriched by the addition of girl choristers. Today the choir consists of eighteen boy choristers, eighteen girl choristers and twelve Vicars Choral (the men of the choir). The boys and girls usually sing separately with the Vicars Choral but occasionally come together for larger events and tours.


Western Wind

Since 1969, the internationally acclaimed vocal sextet, The Western Wind, has devoted itself to the special beauty and variety of a cappella music. The Ensemble's repertoire reveals its diverse background - from Renaissance motets to Fifties rock 'n' roll, from medieval carols to Duke Ellington, from complex works by avant-garde composers to the simplest folk melodies.

In addition to maintaining a demanding performance schedule, which has included such venues as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, ArtPark, The Ordway Theater, The Metropolitan Museum, The Frick Museum, The Jewish Museum, Folger Shakespeare Library, Library of Congress, and the Cleveland Museum of Art, The Western Wind regularly conducts Workshops in Ensemble Singing. The workshops, attended by vocalists ranging from novice to professional, address the particular challenges of singing in small, largely un-conducted ensembles.


Westminster Cathedral Choir

Westminster Cathedral Choir is acclaimed as one of the world's great choirs. Since its foundation in 1903 it has occupied a unique and enviable position at the forefront of English church music, not least because of the ground-breaking work of its first Master of Music, Richard Terry, who revived the great works of the English and continental Renaissance composers. The choir's fame grew under Terry as it presented this forgotten music, revolutionising attitudes to the repertoire. Innovation continued under George Malcolm who pioneered the development of the choir's sound along continental lines, resulting in a choir that was truly revolutionary in both what and how it sang. The choir continues these traditions under its present Master of Music, Martin Baker, and it remains the only Catholic Cathedral choir in the world to sing daily Mass and Vespers. More recent holders of the post have included Colin Mawby, Stephen Cleobury, David Hill and James O'Donnell.


Westminster Choir

Setting the standard for choral excellence for 90 years, the Westminster Choir is composed of students at Westminster Choir College, a division of Rider University's Westminster College of the Arts, in Princeton, N.J. It has been the chorus-in-residence for the Spoleto Festival USA since 1977, performing both in concert and as the opera chorus. The ensemble's 2010-2011 season includes a concert tour of Florida, performances at its home in Princeton, a broadcast of Westminster's annual An Evening of Readings and Carols holiday concert and its annual residency at the Spoleto Festival USA.

Its second recording with Maestro Miller, Noel, was released in September. A collection of French Christmas music and sacred works, the recording also features Westminster alumna Jennifer Larmore, the most recorded mezzo-soprano of our era, and organist Ken Cowan, a member of Westminster's faculty. The recording is also the centerpiece of the PRI Radio broadcast Noel - A Christmas from Paris, hosted by Bill McGlaughlin.


William Ferris Chorale

YL Male Choir

The oldest Finnish language choir, the YL Male Voice Choir, was founded in 1883 as an opinion leader of the Finnish high society. Its roots are in 19th century Finland, which was growing into a separate nation. The origins of Finnish male voice choral singing can be traced to Germany via Uppsala, Sweden. It was first practised in Turku in the late 1810s, and from there it spread east after the university was moved to Helsinki in 1828. Students practised singing under varying conditions and titles - for example, a singing society called Akademiska Sangsallskapet was founded in 1838.

YL as an organisation has managed to respond well to challenges posed by each period of time. On the other hand, it has preserved proven traditions. YL has withstood the language strife, years of war and the radicalism of the late 1960s, when the choir criticised for being reactionary. YL is a part of the history of the University of Helsinki and its Student Union. .
