Annual Concerts — Benefiting Sonoma Community Center

The Valley of the Moon Chamber Ensemble (VOMCE) was conceived by the five “founding members” of the Ensemble (Brian Sebastian, Sheila Whitney, Shannon Howlett, Jerome Smith, and Greg Grabow) during an informal Christmas party at Brian’s home in 2006.  Over the course of the following year, the concept grew and singers were added, rounding out the Ensemble with eight voices – two on each part.

VOMCE gave its debut performance in December 2007, singing a Christmas concert at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art as a benefit for the museum.  It was a smashing success.  Since then, the group has evolved, increasing its membership to 16 voices, deepening technical and artistic performances, and gaining notoriety in the community and a loyal and enthusiastic audience.  With an embrace of 500 years of acapella classical choral repertoire, VOMCE has performed a holiday and a Spring program every year since.  In July 2016 VOMCE continued to break new ground with its first-ever summer pop-up concert at Madrone Vineyard Estates in Glen Ellen.  As with every concert since 2007, VOMCE donates the concert proceeds to local charitable arts programs through its collaboration with the Sonoma Community Center.
