Viva Voce under some arches


Viva Voce is one of Sheffield's finest chamber choirs. Critically acclaimed for the exceptional quality of its singing and an original approach to interpretation and performance, the choir has built up a wide-ranging and challenging repertoire since it started in 1997. Viva Voce concerts offer a unique musical experience where lesser-known music gets an airing and choral classics are given a makeover. The choir currently has a membership of around twenty singers, all experienced musicians living in and around Sheffield.
