THE ORGANIZATION: 

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, 21V is a professional ensemble of soprano and alto voices of all gender identities. Founded in 2021 by Dr. Martín Benvenuto, 21V explores a broad identity of contemporary American music by focusing on music of the 21st century of the three Americas, and challenging existing boundaries and assumptions – both artistically and socially. 21V aims to serve as a beacon for a new generation of treble music lovers, while at the same time inspire awareness and advocacy for underrepresented American continent perspectives.

 

21V’s next project is scheduled for April 2024. See schedule here
