The Voices of Flower Mound, a community chorus, was founded 11 years ago, and is directed by Dr. Arturo Ortega and accompanied by Dr. Migeun Chung. In addition to their own concerts, VFM performs with the Flower Mound Symphony Orchestra and the Trietsch Memorial United Methodist Church chancel choir in both annual patriotic concerts and Christmas concerts. The chorus has also participated in performances of Mozart’s Requiem Mass and Handel’s Messiah. In another annual event, the VFM joins forces with musicians from several area Churches and community choruses in “Rejoice”, a musical fundraiser for CCA.
The Voices of Flower Mound always welcomes new members. Visiting the chorus’s website – voicesofflowermound.com – will provide you with more information about the VFM.
