Bella Voce Women's Chorus of Vermont was founded in March of 2004 by Dr. Dawn Willis. The chorus consists of auditioned singers drawn from five northwestern Vermont counties  and includes  music educators, directors of church ensembles, music education majors, and women of all ages who simply enjoy singing.  

Bella Voce presents two major concerts and additional community performances each year and has commissioned numerous new choral pieces for women's voices. The chorus regularly performs throughout Vermont and has toured in Massachusetts (2012), Austria and Italy (2011), and Ireland (2008).

Bella Voce's recordings include: Christmas Joy (2008), Now Let Us Sing (2007), Glorious Seasons (2012), Songs of Hope and Freedom (2014), Tapestry of Song (2014),  Heart Songs: Music of the World (2017) and a seventh CD recording project currently underway.
