Being in Voci allows me to exercise not just my voice, but my brain!  It is time spent doing something  different than any other part of my life.  I have been with Voci since its inception and have so enjoyed learning about the music we are singing, the variety of that music, practicing different languages, improving my voice, and the joy of performance.  Making many new friends that are enriching my life along with the music of Voci keeps me coming back year after year!--Nancy Merz
