Vox MusicaSacramento, CA
Vox Musica, directed by Daniel Paulson, was founded in 2006 in a niche of untapped potential in Sacramento’s budding classical music scene. This women’s vocal ensemble enjoys the privileged position of nurturing the choral arts by combining outstanding vocal artistry with innovative programming. Vox Musica is committed to excellence in performance of diverse and challenging choral literature for women’s voices and is dedicated to promoting new works, including many premiers and commissioned works. In a recent review, Edward Ortiz, Arts Editor for the Sacramento Bee, hailed Vox Musica as a “welcome addition to the music scene,” praising the group’s “stunning clarity,” “intense color,” and “delicate touch.” Through collaborations with composers, conductors, choirs and musicians from around the world, Vox Musica’s featured concert projects have included collected works from the 18th century Venetian Ospedali, eastern music from India, Persia, and Georgia, a concert of music for Taiko Drums and Women’s Voices, and a concert project featuring electronic music. Vox Musica has released one compact disc, has presented dual concert seasons in both Sacramento and Napa, and has been a featured artist on the prestigious Old First Concert Series in San Francisco and the American Choral Directors Association’s 2011 National Convention in Chicago, IL.
