2020 HUMANITARIAN GIVING PROJECT RECIPIENT
In support of our mission to build community by strengthening organizations that
provide education, the arts, and physical and emotional safety for women, children, and
families, Voices from the Heart is pleased to announce a donation to the
Portland, ME based Pihcintu Multicultural Choir. Comprised of some 35 immigrant girls
from around the globe, the Pihcintu chorus exemplifies our belief in the power of choral
singing to nurture, connect, and celebrate.
SHARING THE JOY OF MUSIC AND OUR RESOURCES
Voices’ community outreach extends beyond our two annual concerts. Each year we perform in community festivals, memorial services for Voices members and special concerts such as the Soweto Gospel Choir’s performance at The Music Hall. Every year, we also make a donation to a local community nonprofit chosen by active Voices’ members, and every trip abroad involves a fundraising effort.
The Voices Choice donation was inspired by our trip to Ireland in 2001, where we raised funds for Friends Forever and for domestic violence agencies in Ireland. Our international efforts were followed by raising funds to clear a minefield in Croatia for our 2007 tour, collecting needed items to bring and distribute during our 2012 Cuba tour, and raising money to support a non-profit in South Africa called Music Works in 2018.
