You Can Make a Difference

Support Our Work


Our latest original single by Composer-in-Residence W. Mitchell Owens III was written to honor Uniting Voices Chicago’s decades-long impact—and potent, powerful future. This upbeat song aims to bring together voices from all sides of a divided society to sing as one: as people united.

Announcing: Uniting Voices Lexington

After decades of requests to bring our program to communities around the country, we're exciting to announce our first program site beyond Chicago: Uniting Voices Lexington. Led by alum Dr. Michael Preacely, Uniting Voices Lexington will be a vocal ensemble for diverse youth ages 12-18 across the city and the wider Bluegrass region. The program will showcase young people as ambassadors of the community and leaders on the global stage.

We have to show the best versions of ourselves to set an example for everyone else. It makes what we do very meaningful. We’re in a choir singing songs, but we’re also really helping people and leading the world.
