A professional acapella vocal octet, Audivi focuses on presenting rarely heard Renaissance masterpieces and premiering new works by modern composers, as well as choral music from all eras.

Audivi is a professional vocal octet based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Founded in 2013, Audivi harks back to a time when unaccompanied singing ensembles were considered the highest form of music in the world. Audivi focuses on presenting rarely heard Renaissance masterpieces and premiering new works by modern composers, as well as choral music from all eras. Its members have sung with professional vocal ensembles around the world, and have appeared on America's Got Talent.

Audivi has performed at many events in the Detroit and Ann Arbor areas, including the Friday Night Live series at the Detroit Institute of Arts. In June 2015, Audivi visited the East Coast as the headlining professional vocal ensemble for the New England Regional American Guild of Organists convention. Upcoming concerts include a brief Midwest tour in March, and Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers in Detroit in April 2016.
