VOCE (Vardan Ovsepian Chamaber Ensemble)
was formed in 2005 in Boston, and is now based in Los Angeles.
VOCE's provocative arrangements integrate elements of three traditions:
western classical forms, jazz improvisation, and folk elements from different lands.
The compositions range from darkly epic and driving, to playful and contemplative,
varying in length from vignettes to longer suites.
“Beautiful sound design...wall to wall melody…ingenious incorporation of the piano
into the ensemble”

in 2017 VOCE has received the Chamber Music America Grant for New Jazz Works program
