Screening of documentary film "Many Voices One Song" March 8, 2014

Women's chorus makes a life changing journey to Croatia

Voices from the Heart is a 200-voiced women’s alternative chorus located in Portsmouth, NH. The chorus sings a rich mix of soulful music from many cultural and musical traditions. Women of all ages and all walks of life attend weekly rehearsals at South Church in downtown Portsmouth. Women come from New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts to sing and to share the joy that comes from making music together.

Please be our guest to view and celebrate the screening of "Many Voices, One Song," the documentary about our 2007 trip to Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia.

Date/Time: Saturday, March 8, 7:00 p.m.
Location: The Frank Jones Center, 400 Route 1 By-Pass, Portsmouth, NH 03801
RSVP: info@voicesfromtheheart.org by Monday, March 2.

With your help, Voices from the Heart raised $140,000, with matching funds from the International Trust Fund, to adopt a minefield and have it cleared. This could not have happened without your support. Directed by Seacoast filmmaker Nancy Pollock, the 25-minute documentary premiered at the New Hampshire Film Festival (NHFF) in November 2013.

Here is a description of the film from the NHFF:
"One hundred thirty women in the Portsmouth, NH-based women’s chorus “Voices from the Heart” make a life-changing connection with Croatian villagers who live surrounded by landmines left from the Balkan war of the 1990’s. Through the universal language of music, this community of American women raised funds to clear the mines in their adopted Croatian village and are invited to make a concert tour of Croatia.

In an emotional meeting the women of Voices sing for the villagers in the area encircled by minefields. Several villagers who were victims of the war, including landmines, share their experiences of loss with some of the Voices members. The few remaining village residents, who are elderly, desperately hope that younger families, including those who fled and some who were severely injured by the landmines, will return to their long-abandoned homes and help revitalize the severely depressed region once the mines are removed."

We hope you will join us on March 8. Please RSVP by Monday, March 3, to info@voicesfromtheheart.org – and thank you again for your tremendous support.

Yours in Song,
Voices from the Heart

One hundred thirty women in the Portsmouth, NH-based women’s chorus “Voices from the Heart” make a life-changing connection with Croatian villagers who live surrounded by landmines left from the Balkan war of the 1990’s. Through the universal language of music this community of American women raised funds to clear the mines in their adopted Croatian village and sang their way across Croatia.

In an emotional meeting the women of Voices sing for the villagers in the area encircled by minefields. Several villagers who were victims of the war, including landmine injuries, share their experiences of loss with some of the Voices members. The few remaining village residents, who are elderly, desperately hope that younger families, including those who fled and some who were severely injured by the landmines, will return to their long-abandoned homes and help revitalize the severely depressed region once the mines are removed. Four years later, a revisit to the village reveals life and growth where there was once danger.
