About Us

Voices of Ascension, under the artistic direction of Dennis Keene, is one of the world's premier professional choral ensembles. During its 25-year history, Voices of Ascension has produced an annual concert series heard by more than 75,000 New Yorkers, released Grammy-nominated recordings, and engaged in artistic collaborations with the San Francisco Symphony, Mostly Mozart, José Limón, Mark Morris, Metropolitan Museum of Art and others. These performances have won acclaim for their 'sheer musical excellence' (NYT), the chorus for being the 'finest in American choral music' (Stereophile), and Keene as the 'leader most widely touted to pick up the mantle of Robert Shaw.' (NYT).

Recently described in the Wall Street Journal (2/1/15) as "richly colored, impressive, and beautifully balanced," Voices of Ascension singers are among the finest professional ensemble musicians in the United States. Their artistry and technical flexibility allow for exceptional performances of choral music of every period and style. The ensemble varies according to the works performed, usually ranging from 20 to 40 singers.
