Lowcountry Voices is a 501(c)(3) performing arts organization dedicated to performing standard choral repertoire to highest standards with special emphasis on African-American music, including Black gospel, jazz, and spirituals. The Lowcountry Voices focus on these genres as they were nurtured and performed in the Lowcountry of South Carolina.
While the choir is based in North Charleston, its members are drawn from across the entire Lowcountry region and beyond. Now entering its sixth season, LCV has performed locally and regionally as well as in Georgia, NewYork, and New Jersey.
Lowcountry Voices was honored to be asked to provide music at the nationally televised services for the Honorable Reverend Clementa Pinckney, the slain pastor of the Mother Emanuel AME tragedy, and was honored to provide the background singing behind President Obama’s touching rendition of Amazing Grace.
In July, 2015, LCV took the sounds of the Lowcountry internationally to Bermuda for two enthusiastically received performances. Also in July, Lowcountry Voices performed with music legend James Taylor in Columbia, SC.
The choir performs in collaboration with several events associated with the North Charleston Cultural Arts Department and venues throughout the tri-county area and beyond. Wherever they perform, Lowcountry Voices delivers a passionate and powerful musical experience which engages every audience.
The Concert Choir
The Concert Choir is a smaller group ranging in membership from 25-35 voices taken from within the large choir. This smaller ensemble primarily performs at smaller venues and at requests for more specific genres of music such as spirituals or noted classics.
Members from the large choir must audition with the Director to gain membership in the Concert Choir.
