Open Call for Singers – One City Chorus

St. Petersburg’s award-winning One City Chorus was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding.

We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. Everyone is welcome – we have no auditions.

We have a great season planned. We’ll once again be singing songs with themes about social justice, civil rights, and diversity – songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, “Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the Doobie Brothers’ “Takin’ It to the Streets”, Neil Diamond’s “America”, U2’s “In the Name of Love” and other wonderful songs by less-widely-known artists.

We’ll be singing a concert in the circular Sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Clearwater on December 1, and we’ll be singing again at St. Pete’s First Night celebrations on December 31 at the United Methodist Church. On February 17 is our annual concert at the Palladium Theater.

Rehearsals are every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum –2240 9th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.

We ask that our singers contribute $20/year to help defray some of our costs. We sing all of our songs “off-book” without sheet music and we have rehearsal recordings of all the parts online. This helps folks who don’t read music well to learn their parts, and it also helps people who have joined us later in the year to catch up.
