Wyman Series presents unique choir concert
March 28, 2014
A Wyman Series event will feature One Voice Mixed Chorus, Minnesota’s LGBTA choir, at 7:30 p.m., on Saturday, March 29, in Abbott Concert Hall in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building at UW-River Falls. The event is free and open to the public.
One Voice Mixed Chorus is Minnesota’s only, and the nation’s largest, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and straight allies chorus. Founded in 1988, One Voice has been “building community and creating social change by raising our voices in song” for more than 25 years. Its 120 singing members range from ages 17 to 77. In addition, the chorus includes nearly 50 non-singing “Fifth Section” volunteers.
The award-winning chorus is known for its musical excellence, diverse programming and deep commitment to community outreach, and is described by Chorus America as “one of the region’s best ensembles.” The high-energy performance will feature guest artist Melanie DeMore and Avenues for Homeless Youth.
According to American folk singer Ronnie Gilbert, “Melanie DeMore’s singing is thrilling. This is not a voice that comes along every day. This is woman power wrapped in velvet.” For more information about One Voice Mixed Chorus, visit www.ovmc.org. More information about DeMore can be found at www.melaniedemore.com.
