Rebecca Booth-Fox is the Founder of Voices of Harmony.  Rebecca has been participating in choirs for 25 years, singing a broad range of styles including classical, a cappella, gospel and spirituals. In 2010 Rebecca became inspired to harness the power of music and conversation to bring the people of Boston together across the perceived boundaries of race, class, neighborhoods and cultural backgrounds. Voices of Harmony is the realization of that idea, a choir that incorporates meaningful dialogue about issues of community and diversity. Rebecca loves working at Big Sister Boston and is also nourished by her involvement in the communities at the YWCA, and Community Change Inc.

DaraDara Cheek is a Boston-based visual artist with a long history in local choirs including Sing Positive, Mystic Chorale, and The Coolidge Corner Community Chorus. She joined Voices of Harmony in 2010 to become more active in social justice efforts and to engage with other casual singers in her community. Outside of singing, Dara organizes artists/entrepreneurs interested in building business skills and a an creative community, travels internationally as much as possible and volunteers with shelter cats at the Ellen Gifford Sheltering Home in Brighton, MA.
hayyim

Hayyim Feldman has been singing for over 60 years with and without partners, but Voices of Harmony, which he joined in 2015 and has co-coordinated for the 2017-’18 season, is his first choir since elementary school. He is thrilled that it welcomes the full global range of musical streams that nourish him in body and soul. He has raised goats and a pig, pruned apple trees, made music, done day labor, taught, organized, counseled, and written one amazing song. He is retired now, but not sure from what. He tries to keep his wife happy, learn and teach some Torah, build solidarity through uncomfortable encounters across potentially divisive boundaries, and keep his heartstrings tuned to G!d.

 Jonathatn Gilbert

Jonathan Gilbert (music director) acquired a taste for intentional and inclusive community as an adolescent attending Quaker youth retreats. He has also made music since childhood, with a history of ensemble singing and playing that includes brushes with professionalism—collaborating with Eric Bornstein’s Behind The Mask Theatre; recording with Diane Taraz and with The Gloucester Hornpipe & Clog Society.  He learned choral conducting while a music major at Earlham College, and later studied early music recorder at The Longy School of Music.  Outside of music, Jonathan is a library assistant—and has previously been a computer programmer, a flute headjoint maker, a full-time parent, and a boffer-sword instructor.  He joined Voices of Harmony in 2017.

Alexandra Gubin has co-coordinated Voices of Harmony during the 2017-18 season and has sung in a variety of groups in the past including choruses, barbershop groups and singing parties.  By day, Alexandra works as a research psychologist doing program evaluation for non-profit organizations.  By night, she spends time with her family, trains her dog, and explores creating a podcast about rounds and canons.
 Simon

Simon Hong is a neuroscientist by day, a robot builder at night. He hopes to build robots one day that could help people have a better life. If you prod him, you will find that his ultimate passion is actually education that could transform the world into a brighter place. We need many more butterflies that could give hope for the flowers.

Jim Propp

 

 

 

Jim Propp loves to sing; he sometimes comes up with memorably annoying ditties and inflicts them upon his children (he and his wife have two) or his students (he has a hundred), ostensibly for their own good. Before joining Voices of Harmony, he sang for many years with Sharing A New Song and traveled on tour with them to South Africa and Louisiana. Jim enjoys percussion and recently studied taiko with his nine-year-old daughter, though most of his percussion these days is of the dinner-table variety. Jim enjoys writing songs (mostly rounds), and boasts that there is no song that he cannot turn into a song about his dog Maggie.
