Join us for Season 15!

It is so exciting for OVC to be celebrating 15 years of serving the Richmond Metropolitan Community. Through your support over the years, we have been able to sing for over 40,000 people in the Central Virginia area, as well as in Washington D.C., the Shenandoah Valley and in the Tidewater regions of the Commonwealth of Virginia. We so appreciate your past and continued support, and in our traditional "y'all come" fashion, we hope you join us as a member of our chorus (no audition required!) or as an audience member for what's going to be a fantastic season.
