 Belle Voci is a community-based, adult choir that sings music for voices in the treble range. Belle Voci performs an eclectic repertoire of wide-ranging styles, showcasing the performance practices of the music’s origin. Belle Voci was founded in 2012 by Craig Cannon, who serves as the organization’s President.

Lorraine Milovac is our Artistic Director as of June 2023.


Belle Voci completed its 11th performance season on May 13, and we're anxious to begin Season 12 in Fall 2023. Season 11 included December's "Forward Into Light" repertoire, and our recent "Loving the Stranger" concerts featured the title piece, written exclusively for Belle Voci by David P. Goldstein, Anne Frank: A Living Voice by Linda Tutas Haugen, and a set of Signal Songs of the Underground Railroad. Sensory Friendly concerts were performed in both December 2022 and May 2023. In previous seasons we presented Andrea Ramsey’s Suffrage Cantata, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of diverse women in history fighting for, and winning, the right to vote. This piece helps to define Belle Voci and our mission, and we will perform it again in coming seasons. Other programs' themes were "Sing for the Cure," funded by the Susan G. Komen Foundation and based on true stories of breast cancer survivors; "Many Voices, One Song," a choral concert comprised of numerous multi-lingual, multicultural, multi-genre pieces collaborating with The Heritage Gospel Chorale of Pittsburgh; and “New Beginnings: Songs for Women to Support Women in Need," featuring the music of American composer Gwyneth Walker - especially her “Songs for Women’s Voices" - in collaboration with the Women’s Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh. 

Our mission is “Connecting Song and Community” through exemplary collaborations of artistic diversity. We are committed to fostering and preserving a culture of diversity, accessibility, and inclusion. We believe music encourages creativity and promotes civic engagement and a healthy community. Belle Voci welcomes singers of all backgrounds, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, religious beliefs, and mental and physical abilities. 


  In June 2019, Belle Voci was named a Susan G. Komen Foundation Promise Keeper Awardee for its service in singing the national anthem at the start of the Race For The Cure. Belle Voci has been a proud RAD Cultural Asset since 2020, and we are grateful to receive support from The Heinz Endowments, the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council,

National Endowment for the Arts, and Pennsylvania Council On The Arts.
