Vox 11 is conducted by the group’s own singer: Heidi Bisgaard Jondahl. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Music (Aarhus/Aalborg) with majors in rhythmical choir conduction. Vox 11 was formed by Gitte Frank who conducted the group until 2009. Since then Vox 11 has been conducted by Morten Vinther Sørensen and later Anders Hornshøj Laugesen.
Vox 11 sings groove based a cappella music inspired by modern R&B, pop, rock, as well as by the contemporary Nordic soundscape. The sound of Vox 11 is characterized by a distinguishable harmony of the voices that depends largely on the joint musical background of the singers (most of whom have been singing together since High School). The repertoire of Vox 11 consists of original songs as well as songs arranged by or for the group, respectively. Vox 11 has released two studio albums so far: Take Off from 2008 and Roots from 2013. The track To søstre (Two Sisters) from Take Off featured on the American a cappella compilation album: Sing V: Groovus. In 2012, Vox 11 also performed on the show En sang for Bayes (A Song for Bayes) on Danish national television (DR2). Furthermore, the group was selected to sing all five tracks on Ørehænger’s 2013-release: Backwards in Reverse (i.e. an instruction CD attached to Ørehænger’s sheet music book of the same name).
