Vox Nova is a select mixed vocal ensemble with keyboard accompanist which performs music from the Renaissance and Baroque eras. Vox Nova also offers opportunities for more individualized performance in duets, trios, madrigals, and the like from these two time periods.
The ensemble performs its own series of concerts at the College. Vox Nova also performs at special events on campus, and makes guest appearances both regionally and statewide. In addition, Vox Nova performers showcase and share their talents with high school choral singers in workshops that expose young students to noteworthy music performed by students of outstanding quality.
As a performer in this choral ensemble, you will receive a Vox Nova performing stipend, a merit scholarship based on your academic record as an incoming student, and College credits for participation while you are a full-time student at Mount Aloysius.
Vox Nova is not a music major, but rather is a performance based opportunity for students who wish to continue their vocal success while pursuing another field of study. Vox Nova singers choose their academic major from the College’s various programs.
To be considered for Vox Nova, you must return:
All students applying to the Vox Nova program must successfully complete an audition. You will be tested for aural and general music skills and asked to sing two solo works of contrasting styles and time period.

An information sheet, sent with your application materials, concerning your taped audition must accompany the tape when submitted. Final acceptance into Vox Nova will be contingent upon a final on-campus re-audition.
