One Voice brings lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and LGBT-affirming people together to celebrate our lives in song. Since 1989, when five Charlotteans met to form the Chorus, One Voice has grown into an important source of strength for our community. The 25 singers at our first rehearsal in January, 1990 have become a joyous and dedicated group of over 70 singers, support members and paid musical staff.

One Voice is the LGBTQIA and allies chorus of Charlotte. Through artistic excellence, One Voice Chorus works to increase understanding and acceptance of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual people. Our achievement in choral music enables us to reach diverse groups to overcome mis-perceptions, and to grow personally, both as performers and as leaders in our community.
Among the many fine choral groups of the south, One Voice is unique as an arts organization that functions to showcase the diversity, artistry and vibrancy of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
Everyone is welcome in One Voice. No auditions required. Our singers come from all walks of life — in all shapes, sizes and shades.
Consider having the chorus perform at your next event.
Ossia: A Podcast from One Voice Chorus Charlotte
An “ossia” is a musical term that literally means something optional—a passage that can be played instead of the original, and which is usually fun and interesting. While our chorus has not been able to meet in person to sing during the pandemic, we created this podcast instead.
Join Artistic Director Cory Davis and a rotating set of OVC singers as together they have entertaining and enlightening conversations about community, choral singing, LGBT issues, and more.
We’ll pair our stories with relevant music recordings from our archives or recently created “virtual choir” songs.
