About the Movie
BIG VOICE chronicles a challenging year in the life of a determined public high school choir director as he pushes his students to achieve a high level of artistry and become “one big voice”, despite the many obstacles they face. Santa Monica High School Choir Director Jeffe Huls’ passion for the choral arts and music fuels his desire to exceed all standards and expectations. The results are hard won, yet exquisite. Following a series of competitive auditions, Mr. Huls compiles his dream ensemble - the most ideal combination of voices he’s ever had. He soon discovers that these thirty-two talented teenagers are also the most unwieldy group he has ever taught. Mr. Huls must convince his students to set aside their egos, conflicting styles, and teenage angst to achieve the artistry he knows they are capable of.BIG VOICE is a story brimming with musical performances as it interweaves slices of life, interviews, and masterwork performances that will sweep you away.

Powerful Music Education Doc
Big Voice is an amazing documentary that really draws you in. The documentary has been edited like a fictional film so you feel like you're watching a story unravel. You really learn what it takes to be a great teacher and artist. Mr. Huls pushes the students to do their best work and the students push back (you have to see it to find out what happens). The documentary reminded me of my high school years, which made the film even more enjoyable. Big Voice feels like it could be set in any school in any state. Anybody who loves high school choir, inspirational films, documentaries, the creative process or just want to laugh and cry should watch Big Voice.
A lovely portrait about the strifes and issues around music in schools, in particular high school, as seen through the eyes of the music teacher. Eductators and students will enjoy this real-life Glee.
