A Little History
In the fall of 2012 eighteen singers came out to audition for a new men’s chorus. These dedicated singers joined together to create Vox Virorum (“The Voice of Men”). Each individual singer offered his own unique voice to create one sound. Vox Virorum is a community men’s chorus in North Carolina’s Triangle Region. Styled after collegiate glee clubs, Vox has become an intergenerational home for singers striving for musical excellence, camaraderie, and community.
Vox Virorum has become a fixture in the choral community and works to foster strong relationships with other choirs in the area. Over the first five year Vox has joined together with the Women’s Voices Chorus, UNC Men’s Glee Club, the Singing States Men of NC State, the Meredith College Chorale, and the choirs of Muskingum University. Vox has sung for many local festivals including the Bull City A Cappella Slam and the All Carolina Invitational Male Choral Festival, and has recorded for Arcen Games Video Game Production Company.
In 2017 Vox Virorum released its first CD, “The Music Before Me” as part of its five-year anniversary celebration. The CD is a compilation of music from the first five years of performances and is available in hard copy at our concerts.
