About Voices of a New Renaissance


Nathan Leaf, Artistic DirectorThe mission of Voices of a New Renaissance is to engage and inspire Triangle audiences through the power of exceptional choral music and professional vocal artistry.


Voices of a New Renaissance was founded by Dr. Nathan Leaf in 2012 with the goal of bringing choral music of the highest quality to Triangle audiences. The group is composed of the area’s finest choral musicians and instrumental collaborators. After a critically acclaimed debut concert on Durham’s St. Stephen’s Concert Series, the ensemble launches their first full season in 2013-2014.

The group explores the full spectrum of choral music, from Gregorian chant to newly composed works, with an emphasis on music of the Renaissance and Baroque eras. The group’s name celebrates the “new renaissance” of innovation and culture in the Triangle region. Voices of a New Renaissance add their talents to that thriving scene by presenting engaging and inspiring performances, and experimenting with new concert formats and locations to bring new audiences to classical choral music.
