Big Voice Documentary Poster

To celebrate National Arts in Education Week, NHSAEF is proud to present this free screening of Big Voice, the 2016 award-winning documentary following a year in the life of Santa Monica High’s choral director, Jeff Huls. From auditions to graduation, Big Voice highlights a director’s passion for music, his efforts to achieve excellence, the challenges of his students, and the transformative power of the arts. Sponsored by NHS Arts Ed Foundation, JM Arts, & Chatham County Schools. #ArtsEdWeek #ArtsEd #CCNC

Starred Review. Exceptional…inspiring and thought provoking. A combination of cajoling, encouragement, innovative techniques, sheer force of will, and a deep-held love of music play a role in motivating and teaching his students. Secondary music teachers and students will find much here to appreciate, as will those who love music.” – School Library Journal

“You have beautifully represented the craft to which we choral educators have devoted our lives.…You have treated your subject matter with respect, humanity, humor, and above all veracity. I know that untold hundreds of thousands of choral singers and conductors will cherish this film.” –Dr. Scott W. Dorsey, Director of Education & Communication, American Choral Directors Association

Big Voice is a passionate and beautiful film that shows just how important the arts are to individual students and the entire community. This inspiring documentary helps spread the word that against all odds, it’s possible to have thriving music and arts programs in our schools.” –Marcy Ross, President, Skydance Television
