City Voices Ensemble

City Voices Ensemble (CVE) is a full-scholarship choral program open to motivated young women ages 13-18 from all boroughs of New York City. Directed by vocal performance faculty member Kelly Campbell, CVE imparts confidence, self-esteem, vocal excellence and teamwork through the frameworks of choral music education and creative youth development.

Students accepted to the program receive personalized training and coaching around healthy vocal techniques, proper breathing, voice placement, and choreography while exploring a variety of musical genres including musical theater, classical, hip-hop, and contemporary. CVE prepares students for professional performance by providing them multiple performance opportunities at TBMS and in other music and theatre venues throughout the city.

CVE strives to foster lifelong friendships by engaging singers in teamwork through part singing. Ensemble members are encouraged to invest in their own artistic growth and the overall growth of the ensemble as they work through the challenges of putting on gorgeous and creative vocal performances.

We strive to support students' social and emotional development, as well as their academic and artistic needs while working toward becoming a society where music education is available to all who want it. We aim to empower all those who are a part of our program to be confident, creative leaders through rigorous artistic practice, academic enrichment, and a commitment to equity through the arts.
