The VOICExperience Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, established by world renowned baritone Sherrill Milnes and his wife, soprano Maria Zouves. Its mission is to pass on the traditions of great singing and develop new audiences for opera. Since 2001, VOICExperience has helped thousands of singers find their career path through educational programs and workshops, where emerging artists work with the best names in opera, musical theatre and song.
Now under the umbrella of The Sherrill Milnes VOICE Programs, VOICExperience continues its dedication to the quality, integrity and perpetuation of the vocal arts through life-changing intensives, performances and community enriching outreach events in New York, Georgia (with the Savannah VOICE Festival), Florida and Illinois.

"LESSONS OF A LIFETIME"
by Gregory Waxberg
The year 2015 marks two remarkable milestones for the legendary Sherrill Milnes. This month the baritone celebrates his 80th birthday, and in December it will be 50 years since he made his Metropolitan Opera debut. Since then, he has sung nearly all of the major baritone roles on stages the world over. Always committed to teaching and education, he continues to draw on his vast experience to fill a void for the next generation of singers through his VOICExperience Foundation. Read about Milnes’ life and career, what he considers the “golden age,” and his newest endeavor: the Savannah VOICE Festival.
