Verdigris gathers the best local and out-of-state talent to present our community with thoughtfully programmed projects. By building an ensemble with talent from across the country we create an environment of collaboration and exchange. Vocal artists with different training, choral experience, and musical vision gather their diverse creative experiences to perform music at the highest level.

  Becoming Alive  featured choral music that was interwoven with a live reading of the Velveteen Rabbit. Choir members wore colors that reflected the simplicity and innocence of the boy in the story.

Verdigris thinks creatively about the way in which choral programs are presented to audiences. We present musical projects connected to specific spaces, stories, and people. Our programs take into account the full aesthetic experience of the listener and transport audience members into a performance that is more than just beautiful sound.
