Founded by composer/baritone/conductor Ed Frazier Davis in 2022, Vox Venti is a semi-professional ensemble of 30 singers from the Chicagoland area, dedicated to the synthesis and performance of unique, diverse, and emotionally powerful choral repertoire.
We take pride in our ability to perform a limitless variety of choral styles with equal diligence and mastery, but we have a special affinity and passion for music by living composers, especially by LGBTQ+ composers, women composers, and composers of color. To that end, we are proudly dedicated to commissioning one new work from a composer from a historically excluded demographic on every concert. Vox Venti's inaugural season will begin in October 2022.
“Vox Venti” translates from Latin to “Voice of the Wind,” representing both the ability of the human voice to emulate a vast range of timbres and the diversity of the Windy City we call home.
Vox Venti is a proud member of the William Baker Choral Foundation. For more information about the Choral Foundation, please visit choralfoundation.org.
