Under the leadership of founding musical director Daniel Galbreath and managing director Christina Jones, Via Nova consists of professional singers from around the West Midlands. Via Nova collaborates with composers, performers, and artists of all disciplines throughout the UK, making experimental vocal music part of the cultural fabric of our city and region. Via Nova embrace an adventurous approach to programming, with a strong commitment to living composers and a special focus on artists from, or working in, Birmingham and the West Midlands.
The group was founded in 2013 by Daniel Galbreath and Ed Denham, and was made up of singers from what is now the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Since that time, Via Nova have performed throughout the UK to consistent critical acclaim, and has developed a reputation for adventurous performances. We are particularly dedicated to collaboration with composers, and work regularly with emerging composers. For more about Via Nova Ensemble, please see their website: www.vianovaensemble.co.uk/
