The 2018 season of Performances in Public Spaces presents, Opera Philadelphia’s Teen Voices of the City Ensemble. Teen Voices of the City Ensemble, or T-VOCE, is a free, all-city choir targeting Philadelphia teens with little to no access to music education through their schools or communities.
For this performance, T-VOCE members will explore the theme of coming together to make change. This idea is borne from Philadelphia’s local and national prominence in the country’s civil rights struggle. We’ll highlight the contributions of local and national civil rights leaders though spoken word and song.
T-VOCE teaches students musicianship skills and voice lessons, and coaches students to improve presentation skills while encouraging them to express themselves through song, spoken word or poetry, dance, photography, and more.
From June through October, the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) presents Performances in Public Spaces, a free series of family-friendly, cultural performances in parks and plazas throughout Philadelphia neighborhoods. The series is part of OACCE’s Arts in Action initiative that regularly brings quality arts programming to communities across Philadelphia and supports local, creative talent.
