Join us for the launch of our first Impact Initiative, Shared Voices!
WELCOME TO SHARED VOICES!
The Denyce Graves Foundation’s Shared Voices initiative builds on the longstanding connections between historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and conservatories to create a classical vocal arts landscape that reflects the diverse world in which we live.
The program is a consortium of schools that are committed to learning with and from each other. Shared Voices centers on providing exchanges between students — and faculty — from both conservatories and HBCUs to further enhance the learning opportunities for all. This initiative amplifies the foundational music training provided by Conservatories and offers an opportunity to learn from the rich HBCU musical heritage. Each program year, Shared Voices, along with administrators and faculty, will facilitate student exchanges in the fall and spring semesters with a selected cohort of students from participating institutions.
