Voci Angelica Trio
Voci Angelica Trio is an international band with members hailing from three continents. Straddling the genres of world folk and classical music, the trio creates an ambitious blend of cultures, reinvigorating traditional songs for contemporary audiences. Vocal harmonies elegantly intertwine with lush cello lines and percussion to create a musical fusion that transcends political and geographic borders.
Voci Angelica Trio's self-titled EP and second album, “Taking Flight: Live from Japan,” both invite listeners to journey through unfamiliar musical landscapes. As Voci continues to unearth musical gems, its musicians have become more attentive to the current situations in the diverse countries they explore. Live performances are a celebration of the group’s cultural wayfaring, showcasing the differences and similarities of our shared humanity.
In 2017, the trio joined the roster of the Boston Celebrity Series Neighborhood Arts Program which presents free concerts for local communities. In 2013, the trio won an Iguana Music Fund grant from Club Passim to purchase a sound system for their school educational program with Young Audiences of Massachusetts. Voci Angelica’s mission has also led to the USA’s East Coast, Midwest and Southern regions; Canada; Japan; and South Korea.
Listeners have described the trio's music as “a haute folk sound that mesmerizes and enthralls,” where each note “sears itself into a goosebump on your arm.”
Voci Angelia Trio was amazing. A pure delight! :)
Wonderful educational component that was easy and brief enough to span many age levels. Great and easy interaction with the kids. There was not much room for them to lose their audience and good crowd control. The music itself was amazing! Also, the pieces were short enough that they kept the interest of the students. Often times, groups choose great but long pieces. So, the audience starts to lose interest. Wonderful performance from start to finish!
Kids and teachers both loved it. They struck just the right balance of performance, talking, audience participation, humor, and passion. Really wonderful.
I honestly thought they had been on TV or something because they had such an amazingly well thought-out and POLISHED routine…LOVED IT!!!
Honestly, I think it could not have been better. The geography lesson with all its surprises, the introductions to each song, and the participation of the audience were excellent ways to capture the 100% attention of kids, who otherwise might have been distracted after a few songs that are so foreign to them. The music was lovely.
They seem to have an intuitive grasp of when little kids need to shift gears, and their music is exquisite.
