[image] Voyces a cappella is a seventeen-voice auditioned mixed vocal ensemble founded in the spring of 1996 and based in Waco, Texas. Founder and director is Suzie Wright. Devoted to the performance of music composed or arranged for unaccompanied mixed voices, the ensemble sang its premier concert on Mother's Day, 1996, with a concert of English folk songs and American spirituals. Audience members commented on the "purity of sound" and the "seamless blend." From that concert came an invitation to sing on the pops concert of the Waco Symphony Orchestra in September where the audience responded enthusiastically with a standing ovation. Other concerts for this season include an Advent concert called "Illuminations," "Songs from the Heart"" (jazz arrangements of popular love songs), and "Music for Holy Week."

All members of Voyces a cappella have extensive musical training, but many have occupations outside the field of music including teachers, librarians, graphic artists, an accountant, a computer business owner, university professors (language, geology, music theory), and university students.
