Collegium Ancora

A professional 16-voice choir. Dedicated to enriching the Ocean State through the arts, we perform music from ancient times & modern, sacred & secular, in celebration of the human voice.

Drawn from Rhode Island’s state motto, “Hope” (Latin: Ancora), the name reflects their conviction that music not only steadies us in a turbulent world, but also beckons us to transcend what is and dream of what could be.
