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.

Bella Voce Camerata at the Barrington White House

Sunday, April 30th, 3:00 p.m.

The Bella Voce Camerata returns to Barrington to share a program entitled “Sweet Lovers Love the Spring,” with intimate vocal works that celebrate springtime. Mixing diverse emotions--of joy, love, hope, longing, and agony--the Camerata seeks to explore the intersection of music and poetry through the performance of Renaissance madrigals and 20th-century vocal jazz, including works by Gershwin, Berlin, Lerner and Lowe, Rutter, Morley and Weelkes.  Tickets are available through Barrington's White House.  To learn more and buy tickets, please use the button 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.
