Altra Volta is a 7-voice a cappella vocal ensemble founded in 1998. Comprised of talented singers in the Calgary music community, the group's diverse repertoire includes classical choral, vocal jazz and pop music. In recent years the group has gone from performing published choral works to also creating arrangements of their own, exploring the many facets of the human voice to emulate various musical instruments.
