We are Verdigris, a professional ensemble of vocal artists exploring the boundaries of the choral medium.
We use choral music to tell our shared stories of the human condition, weaving intricate choral programs into multi-layered experiences. Both in concert and outreach, our mission is to enrich, inspire, and invest into our community through honest choral storytelling, meaningful outreach initiatives, and collaboration.
