Committed to incorporating the role of vocal color into crating exquisite music, Voices of Concinnity is a 12-voice professional chamber ensemble of dedicated, seasoned choral artists from diverse backgrounds who strive to cultivate the art of ensemble singing.  Their sound described as being "like silky smooth butter in musical form" by an audience member, Concinnity works to maximize overtones and unity of sound to create a harmonious, artful landscape of voices.  The word "concinnity" means the harmonious arrangement or fitting together of the different parts of something, which encompasses our ensemble's dedication to the exploration of "coming to agreement*" of our unique voices in lieu of altering our individual vocal timbre.  

   

Directed by Sarah Kaufold, Concinnity was founded in 2018 to help create affordable access for the community to experience professional-level vocal chamber music.  Through the performance of choral music from the Renaissance to the contemporary, Concinnity is dedicated to creating innovative and provocative music programs that encourage the engagement of the community in quality, living music.
