Sing Out Loud is made up of three beautiful choirs.
Bella Voce (beautiful voice) Bella Voce is the original choir that gives young women in grades 9-12 the opportunity to make music at the highest level, while focusing on outreach, women’s empowerment and their core values. Bella Voce has traveled regionally all over the Midwest and has made international appearances in Austria, Czech Republic and Slovakia (2009), Italy (2012), and toured all over Europe in 2015. This 2015 tour included a performance at the Melk Abbey and a collaboration at the Kodály Institute. Most recently, Bella Voce traveled to Greece (2019). In 2012 and 2017 Bella Voce was invited to sing for American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) at their national conference. Bella Voce was also featured on Minnesota Public Radio’s (MPR's) “Taste of the Holidays” broadcast and compilation CD three years in a row, an honor usually offered only to professional groups and adult ensembles. Bella Voce continues to raise the standard for high school women’s choirs musically and beyond. The Bella Voce girls love singing with and get to know both alumni and their younger Bella sisters. They cherish outreach, community and of course, singing for all audiences.
Bella Fiore (beautiful flower) Like the blooming of flowers in spring, the Bella Fiore choir offers up the opportunity of beautiful artistry and singing to young girls in grades 6-8. Bella Fiore was created with the same passion as Bella Voce. When originated, it was especially important to start to establish confidence and instill these girls with their special place in the world using their young voice. We all know the challenging middle school years. For our organization, it was absolutely necessary to provide a safe place for these young women to sing and rejoice with their new Bella sisters. In their first years of being a teenager these young girls will grow up in a supportive, caring, nurturing choir, sharing their music with thousands. Bella Fiore has seen some major successes in its life as an ensemble. The group has sung to many sold out shows, and in 2019 Bella Fiore was selected to perform at the ACDA – MN state conference.
The Bellettes! We at Sing Out Loud have a special place in our hearts for these very young singers (grades 1-5). The Bellettes rehearse only 8 weeks, as we believe children in today's world are overbooked and over-scheduled already. We did not want Sing Out Loud to add to that intensity for parents, but we do want to have the singers look forward to spring singing with the other Bellettes singers. We do believe it is a highlight for many of them as they look forward to it every spring. These young girls are the hope and a bright light for what the future has to offer.
