About Ancora

“This is not hiding mediocre voices in a large collective. This is an entire choir of amazingly well trained voices all working together to make sounds impossible to achieve as an individual. It’s a much richer sound than you’re used to hearing with vocals and you’ll be pulled in almost immediately.”

Mission Statement

Ancora’s mission is to explore and reveal the possibilities of music composed for women’s voices with passion and artistry.
