One Voice (Charlotte)
One Voice is the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Gay-Affirming chorus of Charlotte. Next year will be our 25th season! Through artistic excellence, One Voice Chorus works to increase understanding and acceptance of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Our achievement in choral music enables us to reach diverse groups to overcome misperceptions and to grow personally, both as performers and as leaders in our community.
Artistry and Outreach:
Our upcoming concert, "HOME," is a concert/documentary on homeless LGBT youth in the Charlotte area. We are partnering with two local organizations which help serve homeless youth: Time Out Youth, and the Urban Ministries Center of Charlotte. One of the (formerly) homeless youth interviewed will be joining us on stage in April to sing his own story with the chorus. Jonathan was kicked out of his home by his father at age 17. The only items he took with him were some clothes and some pictures of his mom, who had died when he was 16. The commissioned piece, "Jonathan's Song," combines his story with the old hymn, "Sweet Hour of Prayer," which his mother used to sing with him on Sundays when he was growing up.
