One Voice Mixed Chorus Impact Story

At a recent rehearsal with a high school GSA, a parent of one of the students came into the theater and yelled at his son for being part of the group. After he left, there was a growing fear among the other members around the risks of being too visible and proud to their peers and parents. The uncertainty made many want to cancel the performance. Through an engaging, personal, and vulnerable conversation with One Voice singers who were bullied and targeted in school when they were younger, they felt understood. And more importantly supported. They decided to choose resilience over fear. Almost all of the GSA students showed up to participate in the concert. During the concert, students spoke about their experiences, performed songs they had written, and inspired a rousing applause from the audience for their courage and bravery.
