We support our community
In the beginning...
Vox Harmony was started in February 2009 under the auspices of Launceston Musical Society and is directed by the ever flamboyant and energetic Denise Sam. We are now fully independent under our own management.
Since inception, we have built our membership to around 70 members and are continuing to build on our varied repertoire.
We are a non-auditioned, community choir and as such are open to all members of the community over the age of 18.
At the end of 2012, Vox Harmony was appointed as the official Choir of the City of Launceston by the Launceston City Council, which we continue to date.
We perform at various Council functions and celebrations throughout the year, most notably on ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day.
We also attend Festival of Voices in Hobart annually and are a regular entrant in the Launceston Competitions to keep us on our toes!
In August 2018 Vox Harmony became Incorporated, separating from the Launceston Musical Society to become Vox Harmony Choir Inc.
Each year there are several recurring performances, amongst others Festival of Voices in Hobart, culminating in our own fundraising concert – “Musical Moments” – in November. Vox Harmony has consistently contributed to community causes and over the years we have raised over $2000 per year for the Cancer Council, The Examiner’s Empty Stocking Appeal and the ABC’s Giving Tree. In 2017 we performed Street Requiem together with Jonathon Welch's THE CHO!R and raised over $8,000 for City Mission. Now in our 12th year, we are proud to state that we have raised nearly $40,000 for the local community.
In 2016 we embarked on a “tour” to Ballarat and Melbourne, and due to the success of this trip we did it again in 2019.
As a treat to ourselves – as it is such fun – and to the general public, we occasionally engage in flash singing and World Singing Day in public areas around Launceston.
Our inaugural Vox On The Run weekend tour came into existence in December 2021 to the north-west coast and because this was such a treat for us all we repeated the event in December 2022 - this time to our southern region.
Vox Harmony provides accessible and enjoyable music and hopefully we will create a new dimension to Launceston’s vibrant local arts scene.
