The Village Voices Chorus is a performing group in The Villages, Florida, a group of 130 very musical villagers, many of whom are former music educators and professionals. We rehearse every Friday morning at North Lake Presbyterian church from 9am to 12pm.
Annual auditions are held every August to fill the vacant spots. The season runs from the end of August to the first part of March. We perform three concerts a year and each concert features a variety of music, from classical, to sacred, to pop, always accompanied by different guest musicians.
We are conducted by Dr. John T. Lowe Jr, currently the Director of Music and Organist at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Gainesville and accompanied by Sean Pollock, is Director of Worship at New Covenant United Methodist Church. The Village Voices Chorus is a non-profit charitable organization, supporting music education.
