Artists’ Vocal Ensemble (AVE) is a professional choral ensemble directed by critically acclaimed early music specialist Jonathan Dimmock. AVE has become well known in the San Francisco Bay Area for presenting sacred polyphony for today’s spiritual seekers. Founded on St Cecilia’s Day 2004, AVE brings to life many of the lost masterworks from the Renaissance and Tudor periods, using informed performance style and highly trained singers. While presenting programs of scholarly interest, AVE strives to create experiences that are emotional, spiritual, and contemplative. AVE’s intention is not to limit its audience to early and liturgical music devotees, but to offer this seldom-heard material for an audience of all ages, tastes, and sensibilities.
