Voci Women’s Vocal Ensemble, directed by Mitchell Covington, seeks experienced women singers for its 2018-19 season.
Auditions will be held through August 15, or until all positions are filled. Rehearsals start September 5.
Voci is an intimate, high-level treble ensemble of 24-30 singers that performs adventurous music from a wide range of historical periods. Now in its 27th year, Voci is considered one of the finest choral groups in the Bay Area. Voci promotes and commissions music written for, and by women.
Our 2018-19 season features a wide range of favorites and lesser known, but beautiful works:
--On November 10, Voci will team up with the Kensington Symphony Orchestra to present Claude Debussy’s Nocturnes. Voci will be featured in the 4th movement, “Sirens.”
--December 2 and 8, Voci will present “Season of Peace,” featuring Britten’s A Ceremony of Carols and other works for women's chorus and harp – in collaboration with harpist Meredith Clark. The concerts will also include beautiful medieval and renaissance gems and inspiring settings of Hebrew texts by Joseph Spivak and Sherry Kosinski.
--In May 2019, Voci will present “Northern Lights” featuring stunning 20th and 21st century works by Baltic and Norwegian composers, including Karin Rehnqvist, Galina Grigorjeva, Arvo Pärt, Ola Gjeilo and Ēriks Ešenvalds.
Voci rehearses Wednesday evenings from 7:30 to 10:00 PM in Orinda, and performs primarily in the East Bay. Rehearsals start Wednesday, September 5.
Fall performance dates are November 10, and December 2 & 8.
