How VOCO Works
The world we imagine (Vision): A just, equitable, and socially cohesive world.
How we’ll get there (Mission): Empower students to unite divided communities through music.
Vocal Coalition has three pathways for you to join us:
The Student Alliance: for 5th-12th grade youth community unifiers
The Community Alliance: for cultural groups, educators, schools, faith-based communities, live-music lovers, and donors
The Artistic Alliance: for Colorado musicians in any genre who feel aligned with Vocal Coalition’s vision for unity
Which alliance do you want to learn about?
