Class Overview Welcome to Vox Animae, DePauw’s auditioned SSAA choir. You all passed an audition which means your vocal and musical skill is at a level that allows this group to study and perform advanced choral repertoire from a wide spectrum of eras, styles and genres. I am looking forward to making music with you!
