BIG VOICE follows the tumultuous yearlong journey of "bigger than life" choir director Jeffe Huls and his most advanced co-ed ensemble "The Madrigals" as they strive to create extraordinary music within the context of a public school. Mr. Huls' undeterred passion for the choral arts and music literacy powers his determination to maintain rigorous standards and expectations. Following a series of competitive auditions, Mr. Huls compiles his dream ensemble - the most ideal combination of voices he's ever had. Soon he discovers that these thirty-two talented teenagers are also the most unwieldy group he has ever taught. Mr. Huls must convince his students to set aside their egos, conflicting styles, and teenage angst to achieve the exquisite sound he knows they are capable of. Written by Anonymous

Has music every touched your soul? How about an educator or mentor?

Big Voice masterfully uses the art of documentary to remind us of the the power and importance of arts education. We experience a school year with the struggles and joys of students in their challenging high school choir. Their teacher/director, Jeffe Huls is tough but inspirational, serious yet fun. The dramatic turns of the film are weaved together with a masterful skill by director Varda Bar-Kar that reminds us just how very much we actually had on our shoulders in high school. Music and art and aspiration adds to that load for the students here, but they more importantly provides an escape, a passion and camaraderie unique to the choir room.

Documentary so often excels as a catalyst for important discourse. See this movie, share it with others, and then discuss the importance of music education in schools with all who will listen. Budget cuts and apathetic politics have been threatening and dismantling arts education for years.

Help to use this film about inspiration and education as a tool to educate and inspire.

I love this movie.
