The chorus was founded in January 1997 by Dr. Iris S. Levine and Stacey L. Poston. Twenty-one founding members first appeared on stage as guest artists with the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA) in April 1997. Their much-heralded debut added a sparkling new dimension to the cultural life of the greater Los Angeles metropolitan region.Since that time, VOX has quickly established itself as one of the premier women’s choruses in the United States with a demonstrated ability to perform highly eclectic repertoire, some of which can be heard on several recordings. It has actively fulfilled its mission through an aggressive schedule of performances, touring and educational outreach . VOX has demonstrated its support and encouragement of living composers through commissioning new works.Funded through grants and private donations, VOX has ended every year since its inception in a positive financial position.Auditions are held every August.
