We’re pleased to share with you the video clip below featuring a portion of the original song “Out There,” created and performed for BIG VOICE by composer/songwriter David Babich in collaboration with Madrigal Ensemble members Alice Kors and Joe Colajezzi. “Out There” captures both the excitement and the apprehension that surfaces when we face an unknown future. These conflicting emotions ring true for these older teenagers, who are quickly approaching the end of childhood and the beginning of their adult lives. What better way to express this poignant state of mind than in a song?
We have a new editor!
We would like to welcome editor Robert McFalls to BIG VOICE. Robert takes over from Nick Kleczewski who applied his significant technical prowess to reigning in, syncing, and organizing over 250 hours of footage. Nick continues to serve as our technical and creative consultant. Robert has a true passion for the BIG VOICE story and we are so happy that he can dedicate the time and effort required to take us to the finish line.
Thank you to the Rosenthal Family Foundation
We are grateful for Jamie Wolf and the Rosenthal Family Foundation who have donated $5,000.00 towards our finishing costs. This donation has made it possible for us to purchase much needed post production hardware!

BIG VOICE director invited to West Doc
Varda has been invited to participate in the West Doc Conference this coming September. This high profile conference is a great opportunity to connect with Network and Cable executives regarding possible distribution outlets for BIG VOICE. WestDoc Co-founder Chuck Braverman viewed our clip “Like A Wave” and sent a note saying, “Beautiful, wonderful, moving, emotional….Gave me the shivers. Great.”
Today we are accustomed to pushing a button and getting instant gratification. We can’t offer you this satisfaction with BIG VOICE; this is a big project that requires perseverance, endurance and determination. We are inspired by Mr. Huls, who teaches these attributes to his students and to us as we work towards the dream called BIG VOICE.
Thank you for supporting BIG VOICE…dare to dream!
The BIG VOICE Team
