Founded in 1995 by Joanne Connolly, Voices from the Heart is a 200-voiced women's alternative chorus located in Portsmouth, NH. We come from New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts to rehearse, perform and share the joy that comes from making music together.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
— Peter Jesep, Cultural Reviewer
"The fire, sparkle and warmth that these individuals displayed during the concert make them diamonds. Each showed extraordinary energy, passion and majesty. They're 'Diamond Divas'."
SO MUCH MORE THAN A CHORUS
Voices from the Heart is a community of women drawn and bound together by the shared love of music. In addition to our spring and fall concerts, we perform in small groups for special community events, and for memorial services honoring Voices members who have passed away. We knit comfort shawls for members going through challenging times, we raise money for charitable causes, we share news through our monthly newsletter and we get together for hikes, parties and community celebrations. We talk, we laugh and we cry together in an environment of trust and friendship.
Every few years, we journey to another land to bring a musical message of goodwill and celebration. We invite you to learn about our unforgettable trips to Ireland, Croatia, Cuba and South Africa.
