About: Una Voce’s mission is to bring the joy of singing and musical connection to our community within and beyond CMCB.  We aim to perform quality, diverse repertoire while welcoming singers of varied ages and musical background in a friendly, professional setting.  Rehearsals are structured similarly to a group voice lesson and foster friendship, vocal exploration and unity through musical fellowship.  No experience is required!  My goal as a director is not to produce one particular sound, but explore the musical potential of our singers to create a rich palette of vocal colors and textures as varied as our members.  By honoring each voice that contributes to the ensemble, we produce music that is emotionally honest and aesthetically pleasing.  We have a lot of fun and regularly host informal singalong potlucks, among other social events.  Plus there are always great snacks at rehearsal!  We hope you will join us soon!
