Charlotte’s One Voice Chorus brings LGBT and LGBT allies together to perform concerts typically focusing on love, equality and a general celebration of life. They formed back in 1990 and have since grown from 25 singers to 70 singers, support members and paid musical staff. They welcome performers of all skill and training levels.

One Voice Chorus was recently named Best LGBT Arts Group in our yearly QList Best of LGBT Charlotte Awards. It was their third year in a row winning this title.

Chorus member Jessica Duke shared a behind the scenes look at how they prepare for a concert – called Hollywood Squares: The Speakeasy Edition – on her YouTube channel back in June. In light of their three-peat, we figured this was a good time to let everyone get a peak inside what makes this unique chorus thrive.

One Voice Chorus also uploaded some videos to their YouTube channel from the Hollywood Squares: The Speakeasy Edition show, which you can check out below.
