Who We Are

Vision Statement

withonevoice is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) professional vocal ensemble whose vision is to provide educational experiences and performances that promote excellence in the choral arts through traditional and innovative programming that seeks to entertain, educate, enrich, and expose performers and audiences to a broad range of vocal styles. Members help build and foster an environment that nurtures community through exploratory learning, individual growth, and service.

What We Do

Inspiring Performances

We believe in "arts for all" with performances in rural, urban, and suburban communities.

Educational Workshops

We seek to help everyone find their voice through choral and communal singing, and we train future and current choral educators how to teach varied styles of singing.

Student Programs

We offer Choral Internships, a FREE Student Ticketing Program for all concerts, and discounted student-pricing to all Educational Workshops.

Choral Commissions

We commission composers to premiere new works and arrangements of varied styles of music while promoting diversity in gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other underrecognized groups.

Our Upcoming Season

Our second summer season will be July 14-19, 2024 (arrival on the evening of July 14). The residency program runs from July 15-19 and includes rehearsals and a free Estill Voice Training Level One Course. It will conclude with two culminating concerts and a recording featuring multiple world premieres on Thursday, July 18 at Western Illinois University and Friday, July 19 at St. James Cathedral in downtown Chicago.

Choral Internship Program

Each season will have the opportunity for collegiate students to audition for openings as interns for a season. These opportunities are paid positions and allow students to gain valuable experience as members of a professional vocal ensemble. Choral interns will have the same experience as those on the professional roster for a maximum of one season. Upon graduation, they will have the opportunity to audition for openings on the core membership or substitute rosters.

Rolling Auditions

Throughout the year, we will continue to accept digital auditions for consideration to perform in future seasons and for substitutes as necessary. Seeking video-recorded submissions for soprano, alto, tenor, and bass choral singers who can also belt. These are paid positions of $75 per call for rehearsals and performances.
