Empowering and Uniting the Next Generation of Global Leaders through Music

With a highly anticipated program launched in Fall 2023, Uniting Voices Lexington empowers and unites youth from diverse backgrounds to find their voice and celebrate their common humanity through the power of music.

The program is the first local chapter outside of Chicago for Uniting Voices, an organization founded at the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement and rooted in the belief that music is a vehicle for fostering empathy and respect between young people of all lived experiences.

Uniting Voices Lexington offers performance-based learning built around innovative creative partnerships and compelling artistic endeavors. The organization develops programs that intentionally embrace the diversity of the Bluegrass region, making a high caliber music education available to any singer who wants it.
