VOICES will present their spring concert, WE BELONG TOGETHER-CHANGING HEARTS, at The Kentucky Center (501 W Main Street) in the Bomhard Theatre on Sunday, April 14, 2019, at 5:00pm. Tickets are now on sale for $20 ($15 for students and Seniors) at VoicesKY.org, KentuckyCenter.org, or by calling 502-584-7777. As a chorus for the community, VOICES will spotlight three local community organizations who do incredible work to bring positive change to the lives of people in our community. Each organization will have three minutes of time during the concert to share the core of their organization. VOICES will follow each segment with relatable songs. The organizations are The Center for Women and Families, The University of Louisville LGBTQ Center, and Kentucky Refugees Ministry.
Artistic and Managing Director Jeff Buhrman shared this about VOICES 25th Anniversary concert celebration, "VOICES was founded in 1994, providing a safe space for LGBTQ community to sing together and to share their music and stories with local audiences. During the last 25 years, VOICES has grown into a family of LGBTQA members who welcome the larger community into our family of listeners. We sing for equality, truth, and justice." Added Jeff, "This concert will celebrate VOICES and other mission-focused organizations through video and song. It will be an incredibly entertaining and uplifting concert."
This concert will mark the last production under the direction of Jeff Buhrman who will retire after five years with VOICES, fifteen years as Artistic Director of the Gay Men's Chorus of Washington, DC, and 25 years as a high school choral director and counselor. Jeff shared, "Working with the VOICES singers has been an amazing experience. As musicians, they have grown so much during the last five years. Most importantly, VOICES has developed outstanding partnerships with local arts, LGBTQ and other community organizations as we all work together to change hearts." VOICES is in the midst of a nationwide search for a new Artistic & Managing Director.
