a Seattle-based women's chamber choir

About Ancora

“This is not hiding mediocre voices in a large collective. This is 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.”
