Voices from the Heart is a 200-voiced women’s alternative chorus located in Portsmouth, NH. The chorus sings a rich mix of soulful music from many cultural and musical traditions. Women of all ages and all walks of life attend weekly rehearsals at South Church in downtown Portsmouth. Women come from New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts to sing and to share the joy that comes from making music together.
Reach Across Our Borders, released November 2015, features Voices’ concert recordings from all over the globe. We celebrate with music from the Maori of New Zealand to Mercedes Sosa of Argentina, from Shona and Sotho tribes of South Africa to folk music of Bulgaria. Click here to order online
Hundreds of Voices members and alums celebrated and thanked the community supporters who helped us raise $140,000 to clear a mine field in Croatia in 2007. Read about the film event, watch the trailer and order your copy of Nancy Pollack’s award winning film.
Our powerful and eclectic songs range from African-American spirituals to Korean songs for unity, South African anti-apartheid songs to Macedonian love songs. The songs are powerful testaments to the triumph of the human spirit. Sung with the strength of 200 voices, the songs delight and inspire audiences.
Our 20th Anniversary Season
In 1995, Joanne Connolly brought a handful of women together in an ambitious musical experiment, little knowing that Voices from the Heart would become a vibrant community that has touched thousands of lives at home and abroad. Our 20th season, September 2015 – June 2016, is a celebration of our years together and an affirmation of our musical mission. At our single evening concert on November 21, we invited the audience to join the celebration in “The Big Sing.”
Our June 2016 concert will be a bold, ambitious concert of music from many traditions. Hold onto your hats; it will be a wild ride in Voices’ musical melting pot!
What better way to celebrate our 20th year than with a glass of “Voices From the Heart Vineyards” wine? Six varieties of beautifully labelled Voices wines are now available through Benefit Wines. Order some for yourself and some for gifts; pair your favorite wine with its partner CD!
