    Voces

    Novae, one of Louisville’s prized choral ensembles, will present a concert of new works by American composers this Sunday at Kentucky Country Day Theater.

    Now entering its third decade, Voces Novae has grown into a Louisville musical institution, earning a reputation for its insightful interpretations of both standard and contemporary repertoire.  Founded by Frank A. Heller, III and comprised of as many as seventy musicians, the ensemble takes its namesake from the Latin

    new voices

    and considers itself the most “eclectic, living, unique” game in town.

    Writing for The Courier-Journal, reviewer Marty Rosen confirmed

    Voces

    Novae to be “masterful interpreters” whose musical tastes range from early chant to modern choral works.  The ensemble’s broad repertoire and distinct

    aesthetics

    have yielded collaborations with other local favorites like the Louisville Orchestra and the Louisville Ballet and have also produced a handful of recordings.

    Voces

    Novae’s mission reads, in part, “We are dedicated to awakening the highest musical artistry, providing a camaraderie that nurtures our members' musical and personal development, and delivering a gift to our audience that evokes the spirit with which we embrace our music.”  This weekend’s performance looks to offer exactly that.

    Sunday’s concert will feature new works by Eric

    Whitacre

    , Andrew

    Maxfield

    , David

    Brunner

    and more.

    The performance will begin at 3 pm on Sunday, June

    1st

    .  Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors and $8 for students and children.  They can be purchased at the door as well as online here.
