Solaris Vocal Ensemble is dedicated to the belief that choral music – the powerful combination of music and language – can energize  and inspire the human spirit. Our mission is to bring light and meaning into great choral works that span the ages, through compelling performances imbued with passion and musical  artistry.


Based in Burlington, Vermont, this choir of twenty-four to thirty auditioned singers is led by Artistic Director, Dr. Dawn Willis.  Solaris performs a wide variety of choral literature ranging from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century – from evocative and introspective a cappella selections to more expansive dramatic works involving a variety of instrumental forces.


Visit the Solaris Past Performances page for a look at a list of selections we have performed. If you would like to be kept up-to-date about Solaris activities, please join our mailing list on this site so we can keep you informed about our exciting upcoming performances.
