The Vocal Liberation Front is from Kelly High School, a non-selective, neighborhood school on Chicago's southwest side. Though the teenage singers are members of Kelly Cantantes, a traditional school choral ensemble, VLF explores experiences outside typical high school classical repertoire. VLF sings for packed houses at Kelly High School, throughout the Chicago's Brighton Park community, and for local elementary schools to advocate for increased music opportunities for the youth of Chicago. Its members have sung with the Chicago Public Schools All-City High School Chorus and have entertained on ABC 7 News, for The Chicago Board of Education, and at Voices of the Future benefit concerts for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Members: Vasette Valdez, Jason Cao, Roberto Rodriguez, Emilio Alfaro, Calista Brown, Ivan Monter, Margie Rosario, Krystal Bell
