Our Story

Bella Voce proudly enriches Chicago’s rich cultural tapestry through intimate, moving performances of vocal music.  Since 1983, our ensemble has enchanted audiences with historically informed presentations of vocal works, whether well-known, rare, or new.   We invite our audiences to join us in discovering artworks that have the power to lift us up, move us, and transform us.  Our concerts are crafted through research and careful attention to perfomance practices, and we partner with Chicago’s top period instrument ensembles to bring works for voice and orchestra to life.  Our repertoire and performance practices are rooted in the discipline of the English Renaissance and European Baroque traditions, and we boldly break boundaries to challenge our audiences to explore the expressive and artistic potential the human musical imagination.  We are committed to Chicago and to making the world a safer, more peaceful, more beautiful place through art.
