Teen Voices of the City Ensemble, or T-VOCE (tee-VO-chay), is a free choir open to area teens. A collaboration between Art Sanctuary, Opera Philadelphia, Play On, Philly!, and Singing City, T-VOCE is a chance for you to share your talents with each other and the community. T-VOCE comes from the Italian word "voce," meaning "voice," because this choir is all about empowering and celebrating the voice of Philadelphia youth and their overwhelming talents.
We encourage you to join the choir to make friends as well as great music. T-VOCE is open to everyone aged 13-19. You don’t need to have ANY musical experience; all you need is a love of singing! It’s FREE to participate! And there are multiple performance opportunities throughout the year.
Again, you don’t need to have any musical training or background to join T-VOCE, just a love of singing!
