“It is world-class arts institutions like One Voice Mixed Chorus that contribute to the unique and amazing community that we’re celebrating here in Saint Paul during The Year of Music. They’ve been a fantastic presence in the new Ordway Concert Hall, and I’m excited to see the creativity that will be unleashed on Raspberry Island this summer with Pirates of Penzance.” - St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman

This March, One Voice returns to the Ordway for Well-Versed, a celebration of LGBTQ youth and an evening of choral music, strings and poetry with New York’s hottest string quartet, Well-Strung. Inspired by the poetry of local LGBTQ youth, Well-Versed also features the premiere of a three-movement composition for One Voice and Well-Strung sponsored by the American Composer’s Forum with text by poetry slam champion, Sierra DeMulder, and music by composer George Maurer. Youth poets from RECLAIM, a local community organization offering support to queer and trans youth, are featured as spoken word artists. This concert also premieres with a Friday afternoon performance on March 17 for LGBTQ youth and St. Paul choir students.

On Pride Weekend 2017, get ready for a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance that’s sure to be unlike anything the Twin Cities has ever seen! Set outside on Raspberry Island in downtown St. Paul, One Voice’s Pirates is a topsy-turvy, gender-bending musical adventure for the whole family, featuring a lesbian pirate king and her swarthy crew of sailors arriving by speedboat, an uproarious appearance from the Major General’s “daughters,” and so much more! Featured soloists include One Voice singers along with guest artists from among the Twin Cities’ best musical theater actors. Ben Krywosz, artistic director for Nautilus Theater, serves as artistic consultant, and Gary Briggle as stage director, with musical direction by Jane Ramseyer Miller. We hope you’ll join us on the banks of Mississippi River, in your best pirate costume, for a weekend of dancing and frivolity, plus a live band and plenty of sing-along opportunities for the audience. The show is free and open to the public.
