About Vox Pulchra

It all started with the Spaghetti Dinner. The Capitol Hill Chorale was hosting its annual Spring Fundraiser: A spaghetti dinner with entertainment. Thea Austen and Parker Jayne approached several Sopranos and Altos from CHC and offered to select and arrange a piece to perform as a group. A few rehearsals later, this small group performed the Hallelujah Chorus to mildly thunderous applause!

In 2014, we joined Tina Chancey and Howard Bass of Trio Sephardi for a holiday concert at The Corner Store. In 2015, we expanded the show to two nights, with a narration of the Christmas Story by consummate story teller (Father Christmas Guy).

In 2016, we set up this site to showcase our growing library of arrangements by Parker Jayne. Where possible, we’ve made copies available for use under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license. You are welcome to download and use these works with proper attribution.
