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." 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.
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 twenty-five world premieres, including works by Stephen Paulus, Eric Whitacre, and Ola Gjeilo as well as pieces by esteemed local composers Connor Koppin, Mary Jane Crail, Michael Betz, and William Backlin. One of our most notable world premieres was Whitacre's 'Goodnight Moon' for piano and mixed choir in July 2012.
