Celebrate Black female composers with U Music's Voci Altissime

January 19 2021

In their virtual concert, "Becoming Strength for One Another," University of Utah School of Music's choir, Voci Altissime, performs music entirely by Black, female composers in a program focused on themes of respect, social justice, and unity. The featured composers, Rosephanye Powell, Zanaida Robles, and Brittney Boykin each introduce their piece and discuss the significance of their music within these themes.

Voci Altissime provides treble voices from across campus and of all musical abilities with a challenging and satisfying choral experience. The non-auditioned group of both music and non-music majors studies and performs a variety of the finest choral literature written and transcribed for treble voices. Students and community members can also enroll in Voci Altissime through The University of Utah’s Continuing Education & Community Engagement Program

The choir was also featured in the 2020 College of Fine Arts Studio Magazine.
