Thanks to the declining rates of Covid infections we'll be starting rehearsals on Monday, October 3rd.

We'll rehearse from 7 PM to 8:30 PM at the Lakewood United Methodist Church (5995 MLK St. SOUTH in St. Pete).

For the time being we'll require all singers to be vaccinated and we will continue to wear masks in rehearsal until things improve - which we hope will be soon.

We have an exciting season ahead!

We've been asked to participate in the annual Festival of Praise concert at the First Presbyterian Church downtown next to the Vinoy. Other singers from the area will be invited to join us but we'll form the bulk of the chorus. I've chosen a beautiful choral piece to sing. It's called "The Choral Suite from The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace" by Welch composer Karl Jenkins. It's a hauntingly atmospheric work that's nevertheless pretty easy to sing. We'll also sing five pieces from our season's repertoire. The date of the concert is Sunday afternoon, January 22nd. We won't be memorizing the music for this concert!

Then on February 19th we'll have our annual concert at the Palladium. We'll sing the five pieces we sang in January and 6 or 7 more. I think you'll like the repertoire. It features some songs repeated from last year, songs we sang in seasons past and a few new songs.

ONE CITY CHORUS BENEFIT CONCERT for PEOPLE of UKRAINE

It’s been over two years since this inspiring community chorus’s last performance at the Palladium. They’ve been sidelined by the Covid epidemic ever since, but recently began to sing together again. Though they number only about half of their usual size, they are ready and eager to perform, and they’ll be doing so at this free hour-long concert at Lakewood United Methodist. A goodwill collection will be taken for the people of the Ukraine. May 1, 4 p.m., Lakewood United Methodist Church, 5995 MLK Drive S., St Petersburg, onecitychorus.org.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We received over $7500 in donations to our Annual MLK Food Drive.
As you know, due to COVID, this year our food drive was virtual, and you really made it a huge success. We couldn't have done it without each of you. We'll now send the funds out to the local food banks to replenish their stocks of food during this lean time after the holidays.

Have you used https://EasyVirtualChoir.com? It’s a game changer, super EASY and FREE! The software aligns audio/video tracks automatically and will save you lots of editing time. Many users say EasyVirtualChoir recreates a live choir experience for singers. It allows each singer to follow the conducting/reference video and peer sound tracks to sing along with. Choir director can evaluate/adjust individual recordings before exporting the final production video. The software has also been widely used for virtual rehearsals by which the choir director can quickly evaluate each singer and provide timely feedback. No need to send files around, everything is done within the app. After everyone finishes singing, the choir video can be created in just a few minutes. The entire process is so intuitive, simple and fast for both choir director and singers, that most k-12 school music teachers have got a video created after just one class period. Virtual choir and online rehearsals have become so much easier with EasyVirtualChoir. Hope this free resource will be helpful to your ensemble too!

Beauty & the 'Burg host Cindy Stovall has a fantastic lineup of guests for her next show THIS Thursday including Jon Arterton and James Mack of One City Chorus - St. Petersburg. The One City Chorus specializes in a timely blend of songs about social justice, civil rights, diversity and equality. Their performances have been described as “joyous, uplifting and beautifully sung” by Creative Loafing who honored them with a Best of the Bay Award for “Best Voices Raised Together in Song.” They were founded in October 2016 by their conductor Jon Arterton with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding among people. It welcomes people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with them. In this, their fourth season they have already become a community institution.

Mail Ballot Drop Off
I encourage all of you to take advantage of this opportunity. There are more than a dozen drop off locations in Pinellas County. Fill out your ballot, shield and seal it, and drop it off at one of the locations identified in the mail ballot packet. I, personally, am one of the people manning the drop off locations. We (there are always two of us) collect the ballots in a sealed box during the day. Each evening we transport the ballots under seal to the Supervisor of Elections, where they are accepted. Within a day you will know that your ballot has arrived if you check on votepinellas.com...
I am also a poll worker on election day. The procedures we follow are stringent and I have high confidence that we can have a fair process in our county.
Since it's election season, we are switching it up for the next Beauty & the 'Burg and talking about the politics of art! The discussion will be on the importance of voting and key issues affecting artists, art in schools, and more. Host Cindy Stovall has a fantastic lineup of guests including:
> Florida Representative Jennifer Webb;
> Executive Director of the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum, Terri Lipsey Scott,
> Larry Biddle, Board Chair of The Plus Projec+ and,
> Jon Arterton and James Mack of One City Chorus - St. Petersburg

PLUS artist John L Gascot will be doing a live painting during the show that will be up for auction! Tune in on October 22nd!

Hello! I'm an assistant producer working to develop this feature-length documentary. If this sounds relevant to you, or if you'd like to find out more, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Thank you
Four of us live in same same building — Kathy, Jane, Teresa &me. Since we sing all 3 parts we’ve been rehearsing in the shade of our parking structure—with proper distancing of course. We even brought one observer to tears with “One Day.” Hopefully not because it was terrible! Stay safe everyone.
Here's a lovely way to stay connected. I'm in Wales now and joining in live every morning (10 am here, 6 am for you).

Music brings people together ❤️🌎
I remember watching this when I was a kid.
I thought I would share this now during this time of uncertainty. I miss you all One City Chorus!
Hope we can get back together soon. 🎶🎶🎶
Hope you’re all staying safe & healthy 🙏🏼💪🏼
What a beautiful mission your chorus has! Without diversity, it is quite difficult to create something that is meaningful to all. I just learned about a movie that is being showcased on the opening night of the Gasparilla International Film Festival (GIFF) in Tampa. It’s called Lovebirds and it stars Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani! This is a mystery romantic comedy that depicts an interratial couple that does not include a white person. This beautiful duo takes on a murder mystery as their love story unravels. This film is certainly a step in the right direction and it sends a powerful message to others that it’s time to be much more inclusive in the arts. This film festival seems very exciting and it runs March 17th-22nd! I hope you get the time to check it out!
We enjoyed printing great looking shirts for One City Chorus - St. Petersburg. If you are a local non-profit contact us at 727-350-1919 for special non-profit pricing!

Last night I enjoyed a well sung and VERY meaningful, reflective choral performance by the St Pete's One Cit Chorus and the choir of the Unitarian Universalists Clearwater. At the reception afterwards, I briefly talked with one of the black Ministers who participated. She reminded me of a well-known speech/talk he that is VERY relevant today. Sadly most of what he mentioned STILL is relevant today. Listen to it at:
