Coelis Vocal Ensemble was founded in 2011 by James Choi, Artistic Director of The Pacific Choir with three other musicians in San Francisco Bay Area, Mijeong, Sunghee and Hyunjung. They started with the goal of community building and life enrichment through the sharing of the beauty of music. The group was initially interested in A Cappella from Renaissance and Baroque era but the repertoire has soon expanded to include a variety of choral works of Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary period. The group performed at many concerts to benefit institutions such as Shim-tuh (Domestic Violence Awareness program), Children's Hospital Oakland, and American Cancer Society from 2011 through 2015. Coelis Vocal Ensemble recently performed at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco on June 27th 2015 to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Charter Singing of the United Nations.
Members: Mijeong Kim, Yukyung Byun, Sunyoung Park, Kyung Won Hwang, Yoon-Young Kim, Sunhee Lee, YoonGeong Lee, Sunghee Kang.
