Voices of Naples is currently comprised of 70 members ranging in age from mid 20’s to mid 70’s. We encourage any person who loves to sing and wants to become part of a wonderful, caring group of men and women to call for information about joining Voices. Our music is selected by our Artistic Director in accordance with the appropriate concert theme and venue ranging from popular favorites and Broadway tunes to our famous Messiah Sing-Along. A short voice placement audition is necessary prior to the start of our season and is conducted by our Artistic Director, Dr. Douglas Renfroe.
In June of 2012 a small group from Voices experienced an opportunity of their lifetime by embarking on a 10 day concert tour to Europe. Concerts were sung in Hlahol Hall, Prague, St. Martin Cathedral, Bratislava and St. Michael’s Church, Budapest. For many it was a journey never to be forgotten with hopes and wishes for another tour to another phenomenal country in the near future.
The following August of 2013 members toured Montreal and Quebec City raising financial resources for musical instruments for underprivileged children in Africa.
In August of 2014 members participated in an International Chamber Organ and Choral Festival in Quebec City under the direction of Dr. Renfroe. We were thrilled to experience the opportunity to sing at The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, completed in 1804 where Dr. Renfroe is Artist-in-Residence throughout the summer. We returned to Quebec from August 10-17, 2015 for the second International Chamber Organ and Choral Festival which featured a choir from Germany. In August of 2016 some members will again join the choir of The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in an International Chamber Organ and Choral Festival in Quebec City led by Dr. Renfroe. This year The Worcester Chorus of Worcester Massachusetts, one of the oldest Choruses in the United States, will be bringing 75 of its 150 singers to join in the Choral Festival.
The rehearsal schedule begins in October and concludes in late March or early April as we are a seasonal choral group. We rehearse every Monday evening from 7-9 pm in THE SANCTUARY of the Naples United Church of Christ on the corner of Crayton and Seagate Rds.
We would welcome you to call or e-mail for additional information, come visit us, sing with us and become part of Voices of Naples.
