Pacific Voices: A community choir based in Santa Cruz, CA.
Proud to celebrate our 30th year!
Pacific Voices is a community choir whose purpose is to bring together singers for a joyous and supportive choral and social experience. Through our music, our loving connection and the honoring of diverse musical and spiritual traditions, we inspire audiences and each other in a way that enriches all our lives.
The theme encompasses a musical exploration of songs honoring ancestry, paying homage to the past, holding archetypes of ancestors as spiritual and historic guides, and making promises to be good ancestors for generations to come. Rehearsals are held in person, masking is optional. Music learning tracks are available on our website.
Our artistic director, Crista Berryessa, will be leading an additional ‘deep dive’ into the subject matter outside of rehearsal. This group exploration will be scheduled for four meetings over the span of the season (Zoom is an option) and is open to singers and friends or family who plan to be in the audience. The sessions are for those who want to trace their personal ancestry, share traditions/stories from the past, and research, reconnect, or reckon with their lineages in support of future generations.
