Voices United


ABOUT VOICES UNITED

Voices United is an annual musical gathering of sacred music open to all singers from all walks of life, aged high school through retirement. There is no audition. Registered singers participate in preliminary rehearsals, followed by a two-day workshop with a guest clinician and conductor, capped by an evening concert in conjunction with the Manassas Chorale. 2023 will be our 23rd year of Voices United!

Our guest clinician and conductor for 2023 will be announced at a later date.
