Voices of Change is one of the pioneer professional chamber music ensembles in America dedicated to the performance of music of our time. Now entering its 34th season, Voices of Change has performed for enthusiastic audiences of all ages ranging from Dallas area schools to the greatest international halls.
Voices of Changes repertoire reflects the diverse styles of the music of the 20th and 21st centuries, including demonstrations of innovative techniques for various instruments that produce unusual sounds, such as playing inside the piano and multi-phonics in wind instruments. Voices programming also includes multi-media works that employ visual components, such as slides of paintings with electronic sound accompaniment.
Throughout its 33-year history, Voices of Change has consistently earned national and international recognition and awards both for the high calibre of its performances and for its adventuresome programming. In 1999 the ensemble’s recording, Voces Americanas, was nominated for the prestigious Grammy award.
