Vocal sounds of Belle Voci rings out at St John’s Anglican Church in Chilliwack

‘There is nothing more pure or intimate than the human voice,’ says conductor Paula DeWit

Belle Voci returns to St John’s Anglican Church for an hour of a cappella singing on Sunday.

They sold out in this venue the past few times and they are hoping to keep packing the house for their concert on Nov. 3.

The concert will be just under an hour long and will include 14 songs. Belle Voci recently hosted an a cappella festival in the valley and they will be singing music from that weekend.

A cappella, meaning “in the church style” in Italian, originated when musical instruments were not allowed at religious services.

“There is nothing more pure or intimate than the human voice. It’s incredible to hear how full a sound the singers can produce with just their pure voices and no musical accompaniment,” says conductor Paula DeWit. “The human voice is the only instrument used.”

Belle Voci has evolved and has found their niche. This a cappella ensemble feels at home with many genres but sacred polyphony is their true love.

Experience an evening of sublime vocal music from Belle Voci on Sunday, Nov. 3, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at St John’s Anglican Church in Sardis, followed by a reception.

Admission is by donation. For more information, go to bellevoci.ca or call 604-795-0521.
