Vox Humana is a non-profit organization featuring Vox Humana Choral Ensemble, a women's choir founded in the spring of 2016 with 12 ladies. Rehearsing in the basement of a home in Saratoga Springs, the choir has grown from small beginnings. The choir has performed at The Assembly Hall on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, and in the spring of 2017, their first local performance featured the artwork of local artist J. Kirk Richards with an audience of over 400 in attendance. The choir, now a strong 34 voice ensemble, performs bi-annually in various local venues.
Vox Humana Choral Ensemble hosts an annual free church musician training. This event is to support the local communities in bringing quality music education to the Northwestern Utah County Area.
