Vox Nova Chamber Choir became a broader music organization of four choral ensembles and an extended instrumental consort of players enlisting the talents of youth and adult singers and instrumentalists in the Maine community.
There are more more concerts this season featuring more performers than ever before, an extraordinary expansion for the organization that, in its inception, sought only to stir an interest in modern and contemporary choral music in Midcoast Maine.
Thank you to our members, audience, and community and business sponsors! In no small part, we have you to thank as we extend our reach to thousands of concert goers all over the state and engage hundreds of people in our organization’s management, activities and in fulfilling its artistic mission.
