Bella Voce

The chorus consists of 30-35 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. If you are interested in singing with Bella Voce, please visit our auditions page for more information.

Cantiamo

Cantiamo is a smaller choir of 14-16 singers auditioned from the ranks of the larger chorus. Being smaller and more mobile, this chorus performs an expanded repertoire of a cappella music allowing them to perform in smaller venues around the state. If you are interested in booking Cantiamo for a public event or private party please contact Dawn Willis at director@bellavocevt.org.
