VOENA - Talent on the Move

VOENA - Talent on the Move is performing a special concert with an elite group of talented young performers singing their unique renditions of global or popular music.

VOENA is a captivating, multi-cultural, world music experience that redefines “choir” the way Cirque du Soleil redefines “circus.” Director Annabelle Marie inspires over 130 children from ages 6-18 to celebrate music through voice, sound, rhythm, and physical expression.  

Singing in over 25 languages, VOENA has performed around the globe, inspiring audiences at the 2012 London Olympics, the Grand Ole Opry, as repeat guests at the White House, for Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in Rome, and as goodwill ambassadors to Bali, Italy, Ireland, China, and Japan. VOENA was the first American Choir to sing at the Soweto Festival in South Africa, and VOENA will be heading to Carnegie Hall in April 2018 to perform at the magnificent Isaac Stern Auditorium, under the direction of Grammy-winner, composer and conductor Eric Whitacre, spreading their mission to unite the world and empower future leaders through music.

“If the world had the heart and the courage to see you and hear you, we would be different - we would be changed. You are exactly what the world needs. In your innocence and in your youth and talent, you can teach us so much.” - Dr. Maya Angelou
