ViVoce performs folk and classical choral material in the Revels tradition, weaving past with present through song and story. This past season we presented folk songs from Armenia, Bulgaria, Finland, Croatia, Slovakia, England, and North America. Following ViVoce tradition, these folk and folk-based pieces capture the heartfelt roots of various regions and histories. We also presented The Singing Place, by Joan Szymko, celebrated composer living in Portland, and works by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

For the last three years, ViVoce and guest story-tellers have performed concerts at St. Michael’s celebrating the heart of winter and the summer solstice with folk songs and stories from around the world. ViVoce audience members find the concerts joyful, light-hearted and uplifting. The choir presents "exquisitely beautiful music" in counterpoint with well performed stories. Described as "technically superb," ViVoce evokes "the fire of ancient music." One listener commented, "There were several occasions when my spine actually tingled and the hairs on the back of my neck were horizontal."
