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. www.OneCityChorus.org
