Voices is one of the Triangle’s oldest and most distinguished choral groups with a rich history spanning over four decades. Voices has grown from a small group of adult singers that performed with student choruses from Frank Porter Graham Elementary School and Phillips Middle School in 1980 to the thriving member-governed and operated choral group known for its high standard of excellence today. In addition to the 130-member chorus, Voices also has a smaller, select ensemble, Cantari. Both choruses perform fall and spring concerts often featuring an orchestra and soloists. In the summer, Voices summer chorus performs a theme-based concert typically featuring guest performers ranging from dancers to musicians to actors.
The mission of Voices is to foster, sustain, and share the art and joy of choral music and to enrich the Triangle community through excellent performances of music from diverse cultures and historical periods. Voices’ conductor, Dr. Stephen Futrell, continues to exemplify this mission through the music chosen to perform, musical collaborations and community outreach.
Voices strives for musical excellence and welcomes qualified singers who share the same vision.
