Prominent Chicago-area ensemble Bella Voce has announced its 2023-2024 season.

In a season — the ensemble's 41st — spanning from October to April, Bella Voce will embark on explorations of both staples and forgotten gems of Renaissance and Early Music repertoire over the course of five programs, the bulk of which will be conducted by artistic director Andrew Lewis.

The season opener, in October, launches with a deep dive into the music of English Renaissance composer William Byrd. Then, in November, the ensemble presents a one-night-only performance of Handel's legendary Messiah. Continuing the festivities in December, the ensemble performs Benjamin Britten's A Ceremony of Carols.

March sees a strings-only performance of works by JS Bach, Arcangelo Corelli, and George Frideric Handel, and the season culminates in April with a program focusing on unsung early music and baroque composers.

Each program will have one performance at Evanston's St. Luke's Church, and every program except for the Messiah will also be presented at Roosevelt University's Ganz Hall.
