Artists/Faculty

American Voices artists are chosen for their expertise as performers with a dedication to the American repertoire. In addition, they are selected based on their abilities as cultural diplomats and ambassadors for American culture, often in quite challenging circumstances. Our artists are based not only in the United States, but also in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.
