Join us as we sing of work, struggle, respite and resilience! ViVoce’s upcoming performances will highlight songs of true toil and triumph experienced through work in factories, in the fields, in the home, and on the railroad.

About ViVoce

The name “ViVoce” comes from the creative mingling of two Italian words: “voce,” meaning “voice,” and “vivace,” meaning “lively.” The women of ViVoce perform folk and classical choral material, giving voice to diverse cultural experiences through song and story. ViVoce’s passion is connecting through song to the Portland community and to the communities of long ago and far away. Performances feature songs, storytelling and poetry readings.

The group is directed by Dr. Jamie Lynn Webster.  Dr. Webster holds a Ph. D. in musicology and ethnomusicology from the University of Oregon. Her graduate studies focused on East European—especially Romany—music, early music, pan-American music traditions, gender issues, and music for film and live drama.
