“VAE is made up of some of the finest voices in the Triangle. They are chosen by Wynkoop based on ability, musicality, and the best possible blend of vocal qualities. His rehearsals are always focused and disciplined, a great pleasure, and often fun. Concerts of superior choral quality such as what was experienced in Duke Chapel this evening are the consequence of all of this. How fortunate we are!– Ken Hoover, CVNC

Interior of Duke University Chapel

The Vocal Arts Ensemble of Durham was founded in 1996 by Rodney Wynkoop to provide superior choral performance opportunities for outstanding singers in North Carolina’s Triangle region (Durham, Chapel Hill, and Raleigh). Its 32 members are selected mainly from among musicians who have sung in other choral groups under Dr. Wynkoop’s direction. VAE’s mostly a cappella repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to the present.
