A  CHOIR  FOR  ANDREA  BOCELLI  FOUNDATION:    

“VOICES  OF  HAITI”  WILL  DEBUT  IN  NEW  YORK  

ALONG  WITH  ITS  FOUNDER  

 

When  art  overcomes  all  barriers:  a  week  of  great  events,  from  the  

Lincoln  Center  to  the  United  Nations,  for  sixty  young  Haitian  

choristers,  in  the  new  ABF  music  project      

 

 

The   Andrea   Bocelli   Foundation   -­‐   the   foundation   established   by   the   world   most   famous  



tenor,  with  the  mission  to  “Empower  people  and  communities”  -­‐  has  created  in  Haiti  a  choir  of  

sixty  elements  selected  among  the  over  twelve  thousand  students  from  the  schools  active  in  

Haiti  thanks  to  the  ABF  -­‐  St.  Luc.  Foundation  system.  

The  choir,  named  “Voices  of  Haiti”  and  comprising  of  sixty  young  Haitians  aged  9  to  15,  will  

be  in  New  York  September  13

th

 to  20



th

,  for  its  international  christening.  An  exciting  debut  that  

will  see  the  choir,  together  with  Andrea  Bocelli,  at  a  series  of  prestigious  series  including  the  

“Global  Exchange”  program  at  the  Lincoln  Center,  a  conference  at  the  United  Nations,  a  Gala  

organized  by  World  Childhood  Foundation  USA  in  the  presence  of  HRH  Princess  Madeleine  of  

Sweden,  and  the  “Clinton  Global  Citizen  Awards”  hosted  by  the  Clinton  Foundation.      

Conceived  as  a  structured  and  stable  educational  reality,  this  project  offers  the  opportunity  

to  children  and  young  Haitians  coming  from  extremely  disadvantaged  situations  to  enhance  

their   talent   thanks   to   a   highly   specialized   training,   benefitting   also   from   a   wealth   of  

educational,  cultural  and  life  opportunities,  precious  for  their  future.  

Directed  by  Malcolm  J.  Merriweather,  a  professor  at  Brooklyn  College  Conservatory  (CUNY),  

“Voices  of  Haiti”  will  rely  on  a  team  of  Haitian  musicians,  teachers,  and  administrators.  

To   make   the   experience   as   meaningful   as   possible,   interdisciplinary   activities   have   been  

organized  for  the  choir  in  order  to  expose  the  young  singers  to  the  local  culture  and  tradition  

of  the  hosting  country.  This  will  be  a  regular  feature  of  ABF’s  “Voices  of  Haiti”  project.  

“Voices  of  Haiti”  sings  in  Creole,  Italian  and  English.  For  the  New  York  debut,  the  choir  will  

perform   songs   from   the   Haitian   tradition   and   world   famous   pages   of   classical   and   pop  

repertoire.  Performances  have  already  been  schedule  in  2017  at  New  York’s  Madison  Square  

Garden,  in  Miami  and  in  Europe.
