Bella Voce voted BEST CHORAL ENSEMBLE
August 5, 2022
22,000 Seven Days Newspaper readers voted in the 2022 Seven Daysies Awards. Final result: Bella Voce was voted "BEST CHORAL ENSEMBLE" for the 3rd year in a row! (Our last victory was in 2019, and then the pandemic put a hold on the Seven Daisies festivities for a while.) Thank you for not forgetting about us during that unfortunate time! We all missed singing for you.
