VOICES began in the fall of 2002 as a choral project of the Ithaca
Community Choruses to create a multicultural group of singers
interested in learning, sharing, and singing songs from diverse ethnic
choral traditions. Our hope is that this group serves to broaden your
musical understanding and promote racial and cultural harmony through
the experience of singing world music with other members of the Ithaca
community. Each semester, we perform one major concert, as well as a
few performances for community service. There are NO AUDITIONS. The
ability to read music is NOT a prerequisite.
We perform in various community venues such as local schools, senior homes and community sponsored events, as well as have at least one major concert a year. Currently, we have about 100 members. Everyone is welcome to join; you do not have to know how to read music and there are no auditions.
Recently, we started a new group comprised of a small subset of VOICES called Inner Voices. It is a small, auditioned ensemble of VOICES members launched by Director Whitehead in the Spring of 2008. This energetic group will be an exciting part of our annual concerts. Members also look forward to invitations to perform at community events. If you are interested in joining, let our Director know and he will let everyone know about auditions.
Global vision, local volume. Hear the vibrancy of Ithaca’s VOICES Multicultural Chorus!
