More than 100 singers from throughout Metropolitan Richmond are led by Artistic Director Glen McCune and Assistant Conductor Tom Baynham. One Voice echoes and celebrates the racial diversity of Metropolitan Richmond in its music, mission and membership. A donation of $15 is requested for adults; children 12 and younger are free.
