Celebrate with Us!
In just a few short weeks, Child's Voice will celebrate at the 20th Anniversary Autumn Gala. Annually, Child's Voice families, alumni, friends and supporters gather to share in the success of Child's Voice students and graduates.

This year marks the 20th Anniversary of Child's Voice. As part of this celebration, we are presenting the first ever Voice from the Heart Award. We are excited to honor Mark Levy, current Child's Voice Board President for his 14+ years of service to the students and families of Child's Voice.

Also at the Gala this year, three graduates will share their Child's Voice experience and entertainment will be provided by Art Beat Live! and the Matt Stedman and Ring of Music Orchestra
