The auditioned mid-coast a cappella vocal ensemble VoXX: Voice of Twenty announces its 2017 summer concert series “Where There is Love…”. The program features music that explores that most human of emotions. Early works, both sacred and secular, by Monteverdi, Victoria, Weelkes, and Wilbye, are contrasted with contemporary pieces, including two iterations of “Ubi Caritas” (one by Ola Gjeilo and the other by Maurice Duruflé) and a pair of brand-new love songs written for VoXX by Music Director John Mehrmann.

A small flock of bird songs is also interspersed throughout the program, the strangest of which without a doubt is the enigmatic “Owls,” by Edward Elgar. The group also reprises “The Bluebird” by Charles Villiers Stanford, with its soaring soprano line . As usual, VoXX will sing in various configurations from duet to small ensemble to full group.

VoXX will present four full performances of “Where There is Love…”:

Friday, June 16 - First Church in Belfast, 8 Court St., 7:30 p.m.
