More About Our Company


The mission of Words&Music, Inc. is to present exceptional performances of both traditional and newly commissioned compositions in the vocal chamber music repertoire. Our purpose is to bring beautiful music to the forefront while simultaneously giving equal attention to the wonderful poetry and prose that inspire each work. Our efforts include both educational and performance initiatives throughout our community.


Originally formed in 2006 with the goal of presenting Ned Rorem’s magnum opus for vocal quartet Evidence of Things Not Seen, Words&Music is delighted to be celebrating its 10th official season in 2019-2020 as a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Our mission is embedded in our name: to probe the dynamic and compelling unity of two “languages” —words AND music—in the versatile medium of a vocal chamber ensemble.
