VAE fills a unique niche in our region as a professional chamber choir. Earning a reputation for artistic excellence, VAE presents rich, passionate performances of a broad variety of choral works with precision and unparalleled virtuosity. VAE has enjoyed artistic leadership by some of the nation’s leaders in choral conducting: Grammy Award-winner/seven-time nominee Craig Hella Johnson currently leads the ensemble. Considered one of the finest choral conductors in the U.S., Johnson is praised for his visionary approach and brings depth of knowledge, artistic sensitivity, and rich imagination to the organization.
Choral organizations such as the Vocal Arts Ensemble have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic. This is an important year for you to consider our organization for Giving Tuesday!
