Vox Grata, a Nashville-based women’s choir, is now auditioning sopranos and altos for its second concert season. Audition appointments can be requested through the end of August. Rehearsals take place on Mondays from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 3900 West End Avenue, Nashville. Rehearsals for the 2013/2014 season will begin on Monday, September 16.
Vox Grata was founded by Artistic Director, Jeanette MacCallum in 2012. The ensemble performed its inaugural concert to a standing ovation audience in January 2013, with additional performances in April and May 2013. The choir is comprised of joyful women who, out of gratitude for the fullness of their own lives, possess a desire to sing together for the benefit of others. The group performs repertoire that expresses a uniquely feminine spirit, especially works that promote the best interests of women in society. All concert programs directly benefit the needs of women in the Nashville community. Concerts during the inaugural season benefited Better Decisions, a local women’s prison ministry and Thistle Farms.
Vox Grata performs challenging classical choral repertoire and auditions are limited to singers with significant choral experience. A number of Vox Grata members sing in 2-3 ensembles in the Nashville area, and many study voice privately. Women requesting audition appointments will be asked to list their previous choral experience.
The 2013/2014 Vox Grata Women’s Choir season performance dates are Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, Sunday, March 2, 2014 and Thursday, May 22, 2014.
