Since its inception, members of Voices have hosted a number of creatively-centered events, including: the Poetry Showcase and Thanksgiving on the Hudson. Voices will host Choice of Words, an innovative event that honors various modes of expression, Thursday, April 30.

This event has been challenging yet stimulating for Voices’ creative and physical evolution. The members have not limited themselves to one form of creative expression; instead, they have grown and expanded the breadth and width of their creative process. The group is now composed of singers, dancers, poets, lyricists and activists.

The theme for this year’s showcase Choice of Words is fitting and complementary to the Group’s artistic diversity. SUNY Empire State College students, alumni, faculty, staff and their guests are invited to join the Voices Poetry Group family as they use Choice Words to define/translate/decipher life in real-time. Come witness Voices Poetry Group’s metamorphosis.
