SPRING SOIRÉE

An evening of sips, songs, and silent bids

May 1, 6:00pm

St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Reston, VA

Voce will sing for your supper at its inaugural Spring Soirée and silent auction! Join us for a night of elegance and entertainment including antipasti and dinner catered by a Michelin-rated restaurant, drinks, dessert, and live performances by the Voce Chamber Singers and various soloists and small groups from the ensemble. Enjoy discovering a rich assortment of items up for auction, ranging from handmade artisan crafts and personalized services to themed gift baskets and goods from local small businesses. As you sit back and relax, you’ll be serenaded with a cabaret of solos and ensemble numbers, plus reprisals of Voce fan favorites from this season. Dress code is cocktail attire.

The Silent Auction is now complete, final bidding concluded on May 1 during the event. All proceeds from the evening supported Voce’s mission to sustain and promote the beauty of the choral art form in our community, and allow us to reach wider, more diverse audiences with our music.

The beauty of choral music belongs to all of us! Join Voce as we present a program focused on voices typically underrepresented in the world of classical music.
