Frequently Asked Questions
What is Résonance?
Established in 2012, Résonance is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging, inspiring and challenging those we entertain through eclectic and innovative vocal music performances and compelling collaborations. Our ensemble is comprised of semiprofessional singers from the area. Read more about us here.
How do you pronounce Résonance?
The French pronunciation is "ray-zo-nahns", but in America it is typically said "reh-zah-nuhns". We like to hear it either way!
What style of music do your singers perform?
We are not limited by vocal styles. While at the core, we are an a capella ensemble, we also perform collaboratively with instrumentalists in styles that range from early music and opera to jazz and music theater.
When do you perform?
Our performances typically occur between September and May, but you may hear us performing during the summer months, as well.
Where do you perform?
We are not limited by the venues where we entertain. You will find us performing in concert venues and churches, and in community centers, restaurants, and more. For a list of recent performance sites, check out the Venues page.
When and how often do you rehearse?
Because our artists have additional skills besides singing, our rehearsals are condensed to the weeks leading up to a performance. We typically hold rehearsals in the evenings and weekends. We try to avoid rehearsing and performing on Sunday mornings, unless we are singing as part of a service.
Where do you rehearse?
We are in residence at SNJ Studio of Music and also rehearse at select downtown locations.
