Belle Voci presents its rendition of "America the Beautiful" which opened the virtual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Sept. 13, 2020.
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. 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, sexual orientations, gender identities, races, religious beliefs, and mental and physical abilities.
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.
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.
