Founded on St. Cecilia's Day 2004, Artists' Vocal Ensemble (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. The concerts have a strong impact on audiences, where many describe feelings of being transformed and uplifted. The group itself is a small chamber choir of 8 - 16 singers, depending on the repertoire. Highly acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, AVE has been hosted for an international tour and has recorded several CDs.
Jonathan Dimmock, director, began his musical career at age 14 and has spent the following four decades conducting choirs all around the USA and Europe. Highly regarded as a keyboard player, he has recorded more than 35 CDs - including receiving a Grammy Award for his work with the San Francisco Symphony. He is the co-founder of American Bach Soloists and also the founding director of Art to the Nations, using music in conflict resolution. Jonathan is a graduate of Oberlin and Yale and went on to serve as Organ Scholar at Westminster Abbey. He then returned to the United States and has worked in three cathedrals: St. John the Divine in New York, St. Mark's in Minneapolis, and Grace in San Francisco.
