One City Chorus FREE Concert
The Tampa Bay area has a new community chorus! The One City Chorus will be making its debut at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum at 2240 9th Ave. South in St. Petersburg on February 19th at 3:00 PM. The concert will be free, but a goodwill collection will be taken to benefit the Museum.
The chorus began rehearsing in October and has grown to about 80 enthusiastic members. The underlying philosophy of the chorus is that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding among people - that the world would be a better place if everyone sang. Thats why the chorus has no auditions. It welcomes everyone - experienced and inexperienced singers alike. It rehearses at 7:00 PM on Monday evenings at the Carter Woodson Museum.
Its repertoire features songs with themes of social justice, civil rights, diversity and equality - songs such as Aint Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around, Hard Times Come Again No More, Imagine, Peace Salaam Shalom, Woke Up This Mornin with my Mind Stayed on Freedom, Turn this World Around, Freedom is Coming , We Shall Not Be Moved, Pride (In the Name of Love) and Gonna Take Us All - a powerful song that sums up the mission of the One City Chorus: Gonna take us all to make a change, take us all to win the peace. We need the Buddhists and the Baptists, the Quakers and the Catholics too, the atheists and the agnostics, Muslims and Jews. We need people of all nations, all colors and all creeds to put an end to war and put an end to greed. We need the immigrants and the unions, the greens and the gays, seniors and soccer Moms for the world to become humane. Gonna take us all to make a change. Gonna take us all.
