Screen Shot 2015-01-07 at 12.20.07 PMVox Grata, a Nashville-based women’s choir, will present their winter concert, “Songs of Mary” on January 22, 2015 at Saint Henry Catholic Church. The concert will feature choral works that center on the Virgin Mary, including Poulenc’s Litanies de la Vierge Noire and works by Pergolesi, Rheinberger, Duruflé and others.

Vox Grata is led by Artistic Director Jeanette MacCallum, and is accompanied by organist, Dr. John Semingson.

Vox Grata 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. Vox Grata Women’s Choir is unique among fine choral groups, as this concert and all of their concerts directly benefit the needs of women in the Nashville community.

In lieu of an admission fee, donations will be accepted with the proceeds benefiting The Next Door, a nonprofit agency that offers a range of programs from transitional services for women who have been incarcerated to after-care services aimed at helping women reconnect with their families. The concert will be held at 7:00 PM, Thursday, January 22, 2015 at Saint Henry Catholic Church, 6401 Harding Pike, Nashville, TN. For additional details, go to voxgrata.com or thenextdoor.org.
