Viva Voce is a Sheffield-based chamber choir, with singers from in and around the city. The group runs on a collective basis and performs in a variety of venues both in Sheffield and further afield.
The main aim is to sing music that we like as beautifully and as often as possible. We often choose challenging or lesser-known repertoire.

Music of conflict, concord and commemoration - our programme ranges from Janequin’s rousing call to arms “La Guerre”, through requiem movements by Britten, Martin, Josquin, Morales and Guerrero, to Dominick Argento’s setting of Shakespeare’s Sonnet LXIV, which was the composer’s response to the events of 9/11 and the fall of the Twin Towers. Plus works by Poulenc, Ravel, Vaughan Williams and many more.
BASSESWe’re looking for singers who enjoy wide-ranging and challenging repertoire and can make an effective contribution in a small group.
