We have some specific donation categories from time to time. For instance, when we travelled to Carnegie Hall in the spring of 2013 we had a fundraising campaign for this trip. One ongoing special fund is our Choral Music Commissioning Fund. Monies in this fund are used to pay composers to write new music. We embrace the creation of new music and encourage you to help us with our mission. Donations specific to the Choral Music Commissioning Fund can be made by sending a check to our address above with "Commissioning Fund" in the memo, or by using the Donate button below. We thank you for sharing in our passion for new choral music!


About Una Vocis Choral Ensemble

Una Vocis began with Artistic Director Dennis Lee's vision of a mixed voice choir of such sonority that it was worthy of the name "One of Voice." We've grown from 28 singers in March 2005 to our current 48 members, many of whom hail from area towns as small as a couple hundred citizens. Una Vocis challenges its members' musical talents and fosters a supportive community among its singers; it is an important creative outlet for members whose occupations range from farmer to physician and from music educators to stay-at-home moms. Una Vocis performs two major concerts each season and has been guest choir four times for the annual Iowa Choral Directors Association Summer Symposium.

Mission Statement

Building on the musical heritage of North Iowa, the mission of Una Vocis Choral Ensemble is to cultivate and celebrate the connections among audience, singers, and composers. This diverse community entertains, educates, and uplifts through innovative programming and artistic distinction.

History of Una Vocis Choral Ensemble

Una Vocis was founded in 2005 by Artist Director Dennis Lee. Since its inception, Una Vocis has embraced as one of its missions the commissioning and premiering of works by contemporary composers. To date Una Vocis has performed seventeen world premieres, including works by Stephen Paulus and Eric Whitacre as well as pieces by esteemed local composer William Backlin. One of our most recent world premieres was Whitacre's 'Goodnight Moon' for piano and mixed choir in July 2012.
