Bella Voce

Since its founding in 1983 under the name His Majestie’s Clerkes, Bella Voce has delivered its unique, disciplined choral performances to live audiences in Chicago and environs. Our name comes from the Italian for “beautiful voice,” and the name itself emphasizes that from a group of musicians we craft a single voice. We take great pride in our clean and precise sound, evolved from the Cathedral Choirs of Britain—a sound characterized by a clean and pure upper register and a muscular bass.

For over thirty years, Bella Voce has cultivated the one living tradition of choral music from the earliest chant to contemporary creations. Our wellspring is in the works and performance practices of the European Renaissance and Baroque traditions, and modern masters who invoke or innovate within those traditions. Occasionally, we break those boundaries in ways that help our audiences discover and enjoy more fully this one living tradition.

Under the artistic leadership of Andrew Lewis, profiled in the 2014 Chicago Tribune as top classical artists to watch, Bella Voce’s world-class musicianship brings audiences the experience of extraordinary live or recorded musical performances that are disciplined, vital, and transcendent.

Receiving both critical recognition and media coverage, Bella Voce, at its heart, is about sharing the joy and miracle of breath through music.
