In October 2015, Vox Novus celebrated 15 years of producing, presenting and promoting new music. Founded by composer Robert Voisey, Vox Novus uses a “maximalist” approach introducing new work to audiences everywhere. To achieve this mission, Vox Novus has developed several programs: the Composer’s Voice Concert Series, 60×60, Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame, Circuit Bridges, and xMV.
With a spirit of discovery, Vox Novus uses its concert programs to empower thousands of composers and musicians in 40 countries on 5 continents. Since 2000, Vox Novus has commissioned and premiered the works of thousands of composers around the world from every walk of life with different aesthetics, styles, and career stages. Vox Novus always embraces an ideology of presenting a broad cross-section of the great wealth of contemporary music being written today.
Endeavoring to reach the largest audience, Vox Novus has presented over 500 performances across the planet in numerous venues including Carnegie Hall, Stratford Circus for Open Weekend for 2012 Olympics, Winter Garden Atrium, Enwave Theater in Toronto, St Louis Sheldon Theater for the American Arts Experience, Dance Parade in Tompkins Park, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.
Vox Novus brings its programming approach to common and untraditional venues alike focusing on reaching audiences with dynamic presentation practices. Performances have been presented in various types of venues from concert halls to classrooms; from contemporary museums to art galleries; from projections on building walls to installations in storefront windows; from large public atriums to bars and nightclubs. Vox Novus has presented its performances on TV, radio, Internet, film, video, festivals, concert performances, bar/nightclub happenings and sound/art installations.
Vox Novus believes strongly in the intrinsic value of contemporary music, recognizing it as a force in the advancement of culture and art. Our goal is to keep music alive by strengthening the connection between composer and audience, providing greater exposure to new music.
The goal of the Composer’s Voice Concert Series is to provide a venue for the work of contemporary composers and musicians to express themselves. Composer’s Voice seeks to reveal the variety and abundance from today’s music creators by giving them the opportunity to be heard. The concert series has presented and premiered hundreds of modern works in more than 150 concerts since its inception in 2001.
