Sussex Technical High School’s Bella Voce Chorus competed at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire in Manheim, Pa. on October 19. The 25 voices in the choir performed in the Madrigal competition singing an acapella piece called “Now is the Month of Maying.” Completing their Renaissance look were new outfits for the ladies sewn by Cathy Durham.
Bella Voce is a select female chamber ensemble whose members are chosen by an audition process open to the entire student body. Bella Voce performs music that is more challenging than the regular concert choir. Its intention is to promote the music program at Sussex Tech and enhance the understanding of choral music for both the performer and audience. Music teacher Sarah Rose leads the ensemble.
