Our continued, sincere gratitude to all who donated to Belle Voci through Give Big Pittsburgh this past December. Thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts.
Although the release and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines reveal a glimmer of hope for the end of the pandemic, Belle Voci cancels the remainder of its 2020-2021 season with continued concern for the health and safely of our members and audiences. This includes all in-person rehearsals and performances that were previously scheduled through May of 2021.
The Belle Voci family continues to connect virtually on a weekly schedule that runs through mid-May. This schedule alternates between speaker and social sessions which keep us in touch and prepared to return to in-person rehearsing and performing as soon as it is deemed safe.
Our offshoot ensembles also remain active. Solo Voci, our small a cappella group, meets and rehearses virtually once a month. The directors of Giovani Voci, our young singers group, provide weekly, 20-minute, one-on-one virtual voice lessons and monthly Zoom gatherings for their collective ensemble.
With eyes and ears on COVID-19 information as it is updated and statistics for the increasingly widespread distribution of the vaccine, decisions will be made regarding our 2021-2022 10th Anniversary Season as it gets closer. A final decision is expected by July 15, 2021.
It is with great hope and positivity that Belle Voci begins planning for a return to live, in-person activities in September of 2021.
From the Belle Voci family to yours, please stay safe until we are able to meet again.

Belle Voci is proud to be a
RAD Cultural Asset again in 2021!
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 ninth concert season.
All Belle Voci singers believe in using our voices to support causes that primarily benefit women. Belle Voci has provided financial and product assistance to several Pittsburgh area social agencies in the past several years. In June 2019, Belle Voci was named a Susan G. Komen Foundation Promise Keeper Awardee for its service singing the national anthem at the start of the Race For The Cure for the past four years. In 2020, Belle Voci was designated as a RAD Cultural Asset.
