IMPORTANT UPDATE!! Belle Voci will not be able to participate in RADical Days this year as originally planned. The extended delay in our return to rehearsing due to Covid precautions made it impossible for us to rehearse together in time. We are so sorry for any confusion or inconvenience. Rehearsals for our 2021-2022 10th Anniversary Season begin on October 6, and we can't wait! For any questions, please contact Pam Bruchwalski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your interest and support.
Belle Voci Postpones Diamond Memories: Celebrating 60 Years of Motown Concert
With plans underway for an exciting 2021-2022 Tenth Anniversary Season, Belle Voci announces the postponement of its Diamond Memories: Celebrating 60 Years of Motown concert until the 2022-2023 season. This concert event, originally scheduled for March 14, 2020, had been twice-postponed, most recently to Sunday, October 17, 2021.
Belle Voci is committed to producing exceptional music events. Ongoing, pandemic-related issues won’t allow us to produce our very best quality performance of the exciting Motown repertoire we have in the works for you until later than we’d hoped. When it happens, it will be well worth the wait!
We thank you for your continued support through this strange and difficult time. For additional information, ticket refunds, or any questions, please contact Marketing and Communications Director Pamela Bruchwalski at email@example.com

Belle Voci is proud to be a

Belle Voci is a community-based intergenerational women’s choir that performs an eclectic repertoire of wide-ranging styles, showcasing the performance practices of the music’s origin. Founded in the fall of 2012 by Craig G. Cannon, Belle Voci is currently operating in its tenth concert season. Our mission is “Connecting Song and Community” through exemplary collaborations of artistic diversity performed in geographically different venues with a constant commitment to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion. We believe in using our music to encourage creativity and to promote a vibrant democracy, civic engagement, and a healthy community. We welcome singers of all backgrounds and ethnicities, and we are especially aware of opportunities for gender equality.
This season we will perform Andrea Ramsey’s Suffrage Cantata, which celebrates the 100th anniversary of the diligent courageousness of diverse women in history fighting for, and winning, the right to vote. In previous seasons we presented programs like "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.
All Belle Voci singers believe in using our voices to support causes that primarily benefit women. 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 for the past five years. In 2020, Belle Voci was designated as a RAD Cultural Asset.
