It’s now been more than a year since Volti’s last in-person concert. Daunted at first – as nearly everyone was – we rallied and continued to create new music.
Gratitude is the order of the day. You who have given us support as an audience willing to dive into the unknown waters of music and technology, and you who have supported us financially, have helped us weather the storm.
Volti has made some wonderful new partnerships with composers and has expanded into video and new technologies to create music remotely and deliver it online.
We have presented beautiful and inventive new works by Anne Hege, Danny Clay, and Joel Chapman, and now comes our fourth mini-concert of this unique and challenging season. The intrepid Volti singers are in rehearsal with the remarkable composer/performer and media artist Pamela Z, who is creating a work in five movements titled Ink.
Join us Saturday April 10 at 5:30 PM Pacific time to meet Pamela in our Composers + Cocktails series, and then again on Saturday April 24 for the premiere of Ink, also at 5:30 PM Pacific time.
Stay with us! Things are interesting, and both music and Volti are unstoppable.
Tune in. Zone out. Turn up. Zoom In to Volti!
Zone Out with some of the most beautiful and meditative choral music written in the 21st century.
We are excited to bring you new music again! Click here to find out about our next online concert.
OUR MUSIC LIVES ON . . . AND ONLINE!
