VOICExperience was founded on the musical principles of a golden age of opera. The generation of artists during the long and prolific career of its founder, Sherrill Milnes, represented some of the great singers, directors and conductors in the history of opera. Artists such as Richard Tucker, Robert Merrill, Leontyne Price, Anna Moffo, Joan Sutherland, Renata Tebaldi, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, Franco Zefferelli, Karl Boehm, George Solti, Herbert Von Karajan and so many other legends have shared the stage with the founder, teacher and musical force behind VE. Milnes passes his experiences, insight and musical knowledge onto the young artists who attend our programs. His guidance enables them to keep the great traditions of opera alive today for audiences to experience and enjoy.

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.
