VOICES OF HOPE: A Choral Collaboration

Two amazing choral ensembles from two different cities come together in rare concert performance of literature that seeks to find light in the dark and hope in times of despair.


In April, Vox Musica will be collaborating with the acclaimed San Jose based choral ensemble,The Choral Project (Daniel Hughes, conductor) in VOICES OF HOPE: A Choral Collaboration. This project will bring these two amazing choral ensembles together in a rare concert performance of literature that seeks to find light in the dark and hope in times of despair. The ensembles will seamlessly flow in almost choreographed fashion between music by both groups, as well as feature several combined works. Justice, hope, light, and love are the cornerstones of a program that is sure to connect deeply with the audience. The centerpiece of the concert will include a world premiere by Daniel Hughes. Join us for VOICES OF HOPE on April 22nd and 23rd, in both San Jose and Sacramento, for a powerful and potent musical performance.

Collaborating Artists

The Choral Project

The Choral Project, founded by Artistic Director Daniel Hughes in 1996, has been hailed by San José Mercury News as “a Bay Area jewel,” stating that “there is nothing subtle about why this is one of the best choirs you will ever hear.” This group of multi-talented singers has earned an outstanding reputation for performing high-level choral literature and bridging the gap between text and music, singer and spectator. The ensemble has performed throughout the world in concert performances and choral festivals to great acclaim. They are widely recognized for presenting and preserving great works of choral literature from a wide range of traditions from around the world that express the region’s diversity. The group is equally committed to innovative and dramatic presentations in concert, as well as promoting the choral art through the premieres of new works.
