The Mon Valley Academy for the Arts is expanding its musical opportunities for students and young adults in the Tri-County area by launching the area’s newest show choir, VoiceZ on Fire.

The new group will be performing current charts and standard tunes at events throughout the Valley. The show choir is open to students in junior and senior high and individuals and young adults who are looking for new gigs to showcase their talents for singing, dancing, and playing musical instruments.

MVAA’s initiatives to date have focused on student bands, music lessons, and free summer concerts. The academy’s show choir will provide a creative outlet for youth in the Valley interested in expanding voice skills and learning the fine art of performing with a synchronized group, much like “Glee,” NBC’s highly popular television show. 

“VoiceZ on Fire hopefully will appeal to all youth who love music and are passionate about performing. In a sense, the MVAA show choir is an extension of the high school musical experience,” says Annette Buffer, vice president, who is spearheading the program as Director and Producer along with Chuck Suba, Sound Engineer, Owner/Operator of Wall Street Studios, and MVAA Board Community Affiliate.

Rehearsals will be Tuesdays, starting June 14, from 6-7:30 p.m. in the MVAA office at 309 5th St., Charleroi. Flex scheduling is available to accommodate vacations and other extracurricular activities of show choir participants. MVAA will provide music and audio files as educational guides for mastering the song list.
