    VoCal Welcomes Homelight!

    Voices of California (VoCal) is excited to announce our newest sponsor, HomeLight! HomeLight was founded in 2012 in the city of San Franciso. HomeLight is changing the mortgage industry by "Empowering people to achieve better outcomes during one of life's most important events: Buying or Selling their home."

    HomeLight's sponsorship comes at a critical time as we are gearing up after 13 months of no activity due to the pandemic. VoCal is looking forward to our partnership with HomeLight and making excellent use of their gift. VoCal is looking ahead to youth camp, a fall contest, and hopefully a holiday show later this year. This gift will help with the costs of restarting after our opportunities to help support our financial needs were eliminated last year. 

    HomeLight's sponsorship has made the light at the end of the tunnel even brighter. We are honored to add them to the list of donors and encourage everyone to join us and get to know Voices of California!

    2020 was supposed to be a memorable year for Voices of California. Our first decade of existence, 5th-time to compete on the international stage, our first European Tour, two youth festivals, and the first contest at sea for the Far Western District. At the same time, we got to celebrate our first decade as a chorus. All other milestones were not to be. COVID dominated our year. 

    If the story were to end there or if that paragraph were allowed to frame the year as a whole. It would be very disappointing; 2020 was a year that VoCal had worked years for. So many efforts were supposed to come to fruition in those events. It wasn't enjoyable for the chorus. Yet, instead of hanging our heads, we looked inward and focused on each other. We stayed in contact, supported each other, and allowed ourselves the time to reflect. VoCal chose to love each other and weather the storm. 

    Now, 2021 is here! There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and VoCal will be ready to perform for you as soon as we can hit the stage. We have started this year with  3 new charts! We are shaking off the rust and hoping to see the return of in-person rehearsals in July. Fingers crossed that the vaccine schedule holds, and the results continue to trend in the positive direction we are currently seeing. 

    VoCal is committed to holding our annual holiday sho this year!  We are working with the venue partners to confirm that this will be a possibility. We will keep you posted as the year progresses. In short, we are alive and are excited to get to singing again. Most of all, coming together again to share our love of music and performance with all of you.  More to come in the weeks ahead.

    We wish you a safe and healthy 2021!
