Join us.  On Saturday, June 10th, we’ll cap our 34th season with an evening at the Museum of Contemporary Art, including drinks, hors d’ouevres, live bossa nova, intimate musical performances, and a silent auction.

Bid on curated silent auction packages that celebrate the arts in Chicago, including prizes from Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Chicago Opera Theater, Joffrey Ballet, Giordano Dance, Harris Theater, the Chicago Cubs, and many more! 

Our guests will enjoy access to the galleries, a celebration in the beautiful atrium and newly-renovated event space, and soaking up the summer evening in view of the lake from the lovely garden patio.   We’ll celebrate our past, and offer a taste of what’s to come.

Tickets are still available via the button below. Please note that, given the nature of the event, there will be no ticket sales at the door.

All proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction go to supporting Bella Voce's artistic aspirations, and our concert and recording productions for our 2017 - 2018 season.

Join us!

 


A German Requiem, Johannes Brahms - Chicago Tribune Review

Our April 1 and 2 performances of Brahms’ German Requiem were stunning—emotionally moving for audience and artists alike.   Chicago Tribune Classical Music Critic John von Rhein writes of our intimate presentation of the work that “The choral singing was clear, precise, well-balanced, engaged with the Brahmsian ethos”.   Click here to check out the full review, or listen to a selection from the April 2 concert below.


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 of the human musical imagination.  We are committed to Chicago and to making the world a safer, more peaceful, more beautiful place through art.
