North American Choral Company - Choirs


The North American Choral Company, known to its members as the NACC, comprises five main choirs, and one special ensemble.

Vox Animosa was formed of the remnants of Vox Vivida and Senior Company, and therefore the choir for elementary students. Singers practice and gain experience and confidence in singing multiple parts—mostly 2 or 3 part harmonies. The Vox Animosa uniform is pink or orange tunic top and black pants for girls, while boys wear a black shirt and black pants

The Vox Lumina choir is made up of those who have recently been judged by the artistic director to be between the level of the Midwest Chorale and the Caritas choir. This group is the newest group in the North American Choral Company, having been formed in the summer of 2006. They mostly perform pop-influenced pieces. While their formal uniforms are black dresses, Vox Lumina members usually wear sparkly tunic tops and black pants.

Vox Nova is an advanced chamber ensemble for older singers. This highly select small ensemble of 8-16 members is for the most advanced singers including changed male voices, middle school, high school and college students. Members must possess strong singing, performance, independent, rehearsing and music reading skills.
