VOENA is an award-winning children’s a capella singing group, serving over 150 children ages 6 to 18 at three regional chapters in Benicia, Napa and Santa Rosa. VOENA’s unique no audition policy provides access to its music program for all children and its scholarship program allows all children to participate, regardless of their social or economic background. The VOENA in the Schools (VIS) program brings its programs to nearly 2,000 children in Title 1, low-income K-5 schools in Benicia and Napa. VOENA’s uniqueness lies in the ability of the its Director, Annabelle Marie, to empower children to discover their voices and build self-confidence through song and movement. Its music programs move beyond traditional choir practices and incorporate multiple percussion instruments, dance, and theatrical elements. Annabelle works with each child to instill in them the skills they need to strive for their personal best through what VOENA calls the “Big Three:” 1) Accept the challenge, 2) Develop a hard work ethic, and 3) Be self-motivated. Each year VOENA must raise at least half of its budget to continue its music programs. VOENA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that counts on contributions to make its programs accessible to all children.
