The art and science of happiness on May 13

For 20 years, Voces Novae has been changing the way we interact with choral music through engaging concerts that challenge the singers and audiences. We'd love to hear your favorite concert memory!

We're celebrating our 20th Anniversary with a program about the Art and Science of Happiness at the Unitarian Universalist Church (2120 N. Fee Lane), Saturday, May 13 at Happy Hour (5pm).

The choir will sing a program of Eric Barnum, Hildegard von Bingen, Janequin, choir member Cindy Kallet, Rossini, Whitacre, and Pharrell Williams.

Afterwards, there will be a celebration with food, drink, activities to encourage scientifically-proven ways to boost happiness, and a display of programs from Voces Novae's first 20 years.

Tickets are $15, $10 for students and seniors.

April 10: Supporting Players

Who is a star? And who is a supporting player? And who decides? 

Join us as we explore celebrity and notoriety. We will examine those in the shadow of brighter lights, extol the paragons who support us, and ask why we might choose to sing back-up to others and what we are willing to uphold.

With special guests Amanda Russo, mezzo soprano, and singers from the IU Musical Theatre BFA program.

Music by Antonia Bembo, Michael Daugherty, Norman Dello Joio, Josquin Desprez, Michael Haydn, Heinrich Isaac, Libby Larsen, Stephen Sondheim, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
