PRESS BIO

VOX 3 Collective educates both performers and audiences through varied performances of vocal music. Formed in 2007, the group quickly instituted one of Chicago’s only regular art song recital series. Its members are graduates of some of the country’s finest conservatory programs, and have appeared with major opera companies and orchestras throughout the world. Pairing standard and obscure repertoire—whether Renaissance motet, Baroque opera, Romantic lieder, or contemporary art song—VOX 3 concerts and recitals feature thoughtful programming and provide intimate interaction between singer, accompanist, and audience. Featured on WLUW, WBEZ, and WFMT radio, WOCH television, and recommended by critics and publications throughout Chicago, VOX 3 concerts are entertaining and educational.  Beyond musical performance, VOX 3 builds bridges between branches of art, culture, and history, with its educational efforts through original essays, lectures, and other events.
