Music & MasqueradesMUSIC & MASQUERADES:
Festival of Danish Arts & Culture in Stories & Song


VOX 3 Collective presents its first festival, exploring a particular culture and body of repertoire in depth.   The Winter 2014 festival features performances and lectures celebrating the music of Denmark and its northern European neighbors.  Attend our events or support our festival!  Programs include:

The centerpiece of the festival will be fully staged performances of Carl Nielsen’s opera Maskarade, performed with the Lakeview Orchestra, conducted by Gregory Hughes.  An engaging and amusing comedy reminiscent of Die Fledermaus and Le nozze di Figaro, it is considered Denmark’s national opera.  Other performances will include concerts and recitals featuring song and sacred repertoire from Danish composers—even an interactive program for children focused on the fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen. Please click on the links to the right for more information on festival events, or to download materials.

Music & Masquerades is made possible by a grant from the Chicago Community Trust.  For 97 years, The Chicago Community Trust, our region’s community foundation, has connected the generosity of donors with community needs by making grants to organizations working to improve metropolitan Chicago.  In 2011, the Trust, together with its donors, granted more than $130 million to nonprofit organizations. From strengthening schools to assisting local art programs, from building health centers to protecting the safety net for those hardest hit by the recession, the Trust continues to enhance our region.  To learn more, please visit the Trust online at

Festival sponsors and partners include Chicago Community Trust, City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Swedish American Museum, Lakeview Orchestra, Mode Ensemble, Aestas Consort, and more.
