OUR MISSION: City Voices is a nonprofit organization that provides high quality, individualized voice instruction to underprivileged students in the Des Moines area. Helping students build these skills allows them to more effectively participate in vocal music opportunities around them, including their school and community programs. We also believe that, in doing so, we are mitigating inequalities, facilitating student access to experiences that are frequently out of reach due to a lack of financial resources.
