Midcoast a cappella vocal ensemble VoXX: Voice of Twenty welcomes the arrival of summer with its annual concerts in June and July. Performances will be Friday, June 21, at 7:30 p.m. at Belfast’s First Baptist Church, 95 High St.; Saturday, June 22, at 7:30 p.m. at the Rockport’ Opera House, 6 Central St.; Saturday, July 13, at 7:30 p.m. at the Blue Hill Congregational Church, 22 Tenney Hill; and Sunday, July 14, at 3 p.m. at the historic South Cushing Baptist Church on Salt Pond Road as part of the Cushing Historical Society’s summer series. Admission is $10 at the door.

The Madrigals and More concert program is built around a core of works that celebrate the “part song” as manifested through the ages, with music that ranges from serene to upbeat and sacred to secular. Repertoire covers both a broad spectrum of time, from medieval through the 20th century; and of style, from rondeau, round and Renaissance polyphony through contemporary harmony. Music director Gregory Moore said the group is very excited about its debut performance in the sanctuary space of Belfast’s First Baptist Church.

Now in its second decade, VoXX has sung up and down the Maine coast and generally performs two scheduled concert sets per year, in January and mid-summer. The group mainly performs a cappella, but appropriate instrumentation (recorders, percussion, strings) is occasionally added. Its CD, “VoXX: Voice of Twenty, Favorites Old and New,” is available at the group’s concerts and website and via cdbaby.com.
