“Angelic” voices will take flight when Geelong’s one and only chamber choir performs at the city’s basilica next Sunday.
Helen Seymour and husband Tom Healey began the Vox Angelica Geelong Chamber Choir in 2012 before moving to Brimlea in 2014.
“We chose the choir on their ability to blend,” she said. “We’ve got some fine musicians in it with some lovely, pure voices.”
What started as an octet of women’s voices grew into a 20-person choir of soprano, alto, tenor and bass.
“They’re very keen singers who wanted to be in a fine choir, and they’re very happy to put in the effort,” Helen said.
The experienced 20-person choir will give voice to their new concert Do I love you more than a day?
Love is a fitting theme for the choir, given Helen and Tom have shared their passion for music with son Tom, who performs alongside them.
“Our daughter was in the choir, too, but she’s moved to America,” Helen said. “All our children are very musical.”
The concert features the music of prolific composers such as Pearsall, Weelkes, Schumann, Vaughan Williams Minchin, Rorem and Whitacre.
The choir’s Jane Bashiruddin said the 17 September concert would explore “the complexity and simplicity of love throughout the centuries”.
