Lowcountry Voices is a multicultural and ethnically diverse choral performing arts organization based in North Charleston. It performs all genres of choral music with an emphasis on the tradition of Lowcountry African-American music, including gospel music, spirituals, hymns, jazz, and classical choral music.
