Snow falling in lazy drifts under streetlights, people hurrying home laden with packages, and then around the corner...the sound of singing. Carolers!

There’s nothing like the sound of a good group of Christmas carolers to bring home the holiday spirit. VoX, dressed in Victorian finery, has been singing their own special brand of a capella holiday music to Rhode Islanders for over sixteen years.

You can book us for a party, or come to one of our public performances (listed in the schedule below) — either way it’s a treat for the eyes and ears. Bonus? At the end of the season we donate whatever we’ve made to various charities, mostly local.

In the Spirit of the Season  When all the singing is done, we love getting together to give away the proceeds. Music and the arts are dear to our hearts, but we also give back to the community in general. In recent years we have donated to: Amos House, New Urban Arts, Habitat for Humanity, Summerbridge, RI for Community and Justice, Sojourner House, RI Community Food Bank, CityArts, New Hope, Crossroads, American Red Cross, Partners in Health – Haiti, and Community MusicWorks.

When you book us for a party or make a donation, you get much more than music - you join us in aiding these non-profits.

About VoX*

VoX (Voices of Xmas) began in the early 1990s, when a local group of church choristers decided they'd like to bring really good Christmas music to shut-ins. This is still the heart of the VoX mission. The a capella singers perform free at local nursing homes and at reduced rates for non-profits, as well as at an annual lineup of paying engagements at places like the University Club and private parties. Trinity Rep's opening night performance of "A Christmas Carol" is also VoX's traditional season opener, putting both crowd and group in the proper holiday mood.

Mixing traditional favorites such as "Deck the Halls" and "Joy to the World" with modern carols like "Let it Snow" and "White Christmas" and their own arrangements of songs like "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph the Red- Nosed Reindeer", and dressed in Victorian finery, VoX is both a musical and visual treat for the season.

Members truly enjoy this special time, and have been known to break into song in restaurants, just for fun! Shortly after Chrismas, the non-profit's 12-19 singers meet to decide what local charities will get their seasonal proceeds. VoX continues to celebrate the music of Christmas at nursing homes and public venues in the Providence area. Look for dates and locations on our Facebook Page, or here on our web site.

* "Xmas” is an old-fashioned shorthand for “Christmas”, using the Greek symbol Chi, or “X”. “X” was used by early Christians as a secret symbol meaning “Christ”. We like it because it makes our acronym = VoX, which in Latin means “voice".
