Vox Femina – Listen to These Women

Vox Femina Conductor Iris Levine
Vox Femina Founder and Conductor Dr. Iris Levine

Vox Femina celebrates the unique characteristics of distinct cultures and at the same time, looks beyond our cultural identities to our common humanity. Intercultural Conversations is Vox’s concert especially prepared for presentation in its home town of Culver City. The repertoire will include pieces honoring the critical role that Jewish women have played historically in preserving the Jewish culture and Sabbath. Also included are songs exploring the rich and complex effects that Mexican, Central and South American cultures have on our urban landscape. Additionally, Vox will pay tribute to those women who have had the courage to push against the constraints of the status quo and insist on a new world order. Vox will encourage women from all communities who may not be heard today to sing out in their own unique voices to help create a world that will hear them.

Vox Femina Los Angeles gives women voice through the performance of quality choral literature. Diverse in culture, age, race, belief, and sexual identity, we are a chorus committed to commissioning new works and raising awareness about issues that affect us as a family of women. Through music, we aim to create a world that affirms the worth and dignity of every person. Dr. Iris S. Levine founded Vox in 1997. In the past 14 years, Vox has establishes itself as one of the preeminent women’s choruses in the United State with a demonstrated ability to perform highly eclectic repertoire, some of which can be heard on several recordings. It has actively fulfilled its goals through an exciting and schedule of performances, touring and education outreach. Vox Femina Los Angeles is funded through grants and private donations.
