The San Luis Obispo County Vocal Arts Ensemble (VAE) has been delighting audiences locally, nationally and internationally for 35 years. The Ensemble performs concerts each season and travels to festivals and competitions in the even years. In odd years, the Vocal Arts Ensemble produces the California International Choral Competition & Festival, hosting choirs from around the world in the summer. It is the only choral competition of its kind in the United States.
The VAE is a group of men and women who are passionate about choral music. They volunteer their time to memorize often difficult choral selections from contemporaries and the choral Masters, performing multiple selections in concerts that take place in churches such as the Mission de San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, the Performing Arts Center on the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo campus and in arts venues across the county. We invite you to experience the beauty and joy of choral music with us. And, if you are interested in joining, the Ensemble is always looking for new members.
Upcoming Vocal Arts Ensemble Performances
Our 2012-13 Season will begin with our traditional holiday concerts on December 1st & 2nd at the Mission San Luis Obispo, followed by concerts in early April 2012 and a “mini” Choral Festival in early July 2013 also at the Mission San Luis Obispo.
We look forward to seeing you at a concert. Contact our office to receive a season brochure by mail at email@example.com or call (805) 541-6797.
