Vox Divina

Women's choir performance.The Women's Choir was re-established in 2007 and is an integral part of Central’s Choral offerings. It was renamed Vox Divina (or "Divine Voices") in 2017.

It is a group of between 30 and 50 singers which meets Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12:00-12:50.

It is open to any soprano/alto who likes to sing. While many of the singers are music majors, many are NOT majors as well. 

If you sang in High School or before and haven't yet tried a choir at CWU  - go for it!  In a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, you will not only meet some great people, you will experience what it's like to sing good music at a high level!  

Women’s choir Fall 2016 repertoire mashup (20 seconds of each song)

Includes: Cantemus, Beau Soir, Panta Rhei and Valkyrie. 

The group regularly programs a wide variety of challenging and entertaining music, and provides an opportunity for more experienced singers to move at a quick pace while exploring the wealth of music available for soprano & alto voices.

The high quality of performance is evidenced by the fact that Vox (then known as the CWU’s Women's Choir) was chosen to perform for the 2012 state Washington Music Educators Association Conference.  Repertoire ranges from serious to lighthearted and multicultural.  In the Spring of 2011 they were honored to join with two other CWU choirs and the Symphony Orchestra in performing Magnificat by Alan Hovhaness in Seattle’s Benaroya Hall.  

On the lighthearted side - one of the hits of a recent concert school year was their rendition of “Hail, Holy Queen” from the movie Sister Act. In 2016, the group performed the Raga “Pallanda”.

The choir collaborated with two CWU Faculty in the 2016-17 school year: Dr. Adam Pelandini was soprano sax soloist in the US Premiere of “Valkyrie” on our fall concert and mezzo Dr. Melissa Schiel sang Ständchen (Schubert) with the group on the Winter Quarter 2017 concert.
