Our 20th Anniversary Season!

It’s our 20th Anniversary!  Founded in 2000 by Carol Woodward Ratzlaff in response to widespread cuts to public school arts programs, 2019-20 marks VIVA’s 20th season as a downtown family of choirs. We are once again facing deep cuts to education; arts education is a casualty, perceived as a frill. We continue to assert that a choral music education which incorporates critical thought and creative process is not just relevant, but essential to the twenty-first century learner. 

We have a spectacular season of celebration planned, including a concert with five commissioned works by five incredible composers. This concert will also feature guest artists such as Alison Melville, Ben Grossman and RH Thomson!

We are thrilled to announce the formation of a Senior Treble Chorus, our seventh choir!  This ensemble will seek to empower young women to assume and practice leadership through choral music.
