Vox Insana Chamber Choir

The Vox Insana Chamber Choir started its journey in 2009, when a group of friends decided to create something new and unique. Under the direction of lead choirmaster Csaba Tőri, a recipient of the Rezső Lantos prize for young Hungarian choirmasters, the choir has become a regular performer of the choral scene in Hungary. Co-conductor Dóra Orosz, another Lantos-award recipient, joined the choir in 2016. The choir’s repertoire includes pieces from a multitude of musical eras – they are eager to perform anything from Baroque to Romanticism, from medieval to the most recent contemporary pieces.
