The name Meritáge is our play on the vintner’s term meritage

which refers to the blending of fine wines—

hence, in musical terms, the “blending of fine voices”

with a diverse mixture of repertoire and styles.

Meritáge Vocal Arts Ensemble is composed of approximately 60 skilled and

auditioned singers under the direction of Brian Dehn, Artistic Director.
