The group evolved out of a vocal technique workshop organized by Beatriz Malnic and Loren Oliveira in 2001. Since then, these two musical directors have brought together a cast of devoted women, who volunteer their voices and time promoting and preserving the rich multicultural Brazilian heritage fostering multicultural exchange, music appreciation, and education.
Brazilian Voices hosts auditions twice a year to bring in new members to the group. As a non-profit organization, the group relies almost solely on sponsorships and grants. Members are not compensated, and all profits revert to the Research and Development of new projects and programs.
