Seattle-based women’s chamber choir Ancora performs music both adventurous and traditional, highlighting the beauty and mystique of the female voice. With two recordings available, Ancora has an active concert season, performing throughout the Seattle region with a minimum of two full concerts per year. Other performances have included Northwest Folklife, the Leavenworth tree lighting, and the popular Figgy Pudding caroling competition, which the choir has won twice.
