The One City Chorus was founded in the fall of 2016 with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding among people. We aim to make the world a better place by singing of songs about social justice, civil rights, diversity and equality. Our performances have been described as “joyous, uplifting and beautifully sung” by Creative Loafing who honored us with a Best of the Bay Award for “Best Voices Raised Together in Song.” We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. We have NO auditions! We meet on Mondays at 7:00 PM at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum – 2240 9th Ave. South in St. Petersburg. We have some wonderful concerts lined up for the coming season. We’ll be returning to First Night St. Pete for the third year in a row on New Year’s Eve. Then we’ll sing on Martin Luther King weekend in the beautiful round sanctuary of the Clearwater UU Church. On February 16th we’ll have our annual concert at the Palladium Theater. There will probably be at least two more performances yet to be finalized.
Rehearsals are Monday nights from 7-9pm at the Carter Woodson African American Museum. Please come join us!
