Values and Core Beliefs

VOICES Boston is guided by the following values and core beliefs:

  • Music is powerful.
  • Making and performing music is a powerful tool for young people to develop as citizens and human beings, providing confidence, a means of expression, a sense of community, the tangible rewards of hard work and the joy of creating beauty for others to enjoy.
  • Music and performance allow young people to develop extraordinary skills in teamwork and collaboration.
  • Excellent art should be accessible to all.
  • All children, if they commit to regular practice, are able to produce musical performances of the highest quality.
  • Musical background and financial means should not determine a child’s ability to achieve and create artistic excellence.
  • Music opens one’s eyes and heart.
  • Singing a broad repertoire of music from around the world creates a deep understanding and love for different cultures.
  • Traveling to other countries is an enriching experience furthering the personal and musical development of the ensemble’s participants.
  • Making music with people from other countries in other countries is a life-changing experience that empowers, inspires and builds strong bridges.
