The group has been invited to perform at various educational conferences and collegiate jazz festivals in the United States, including the American Choral Director’s Association (ACDA) international convention , Jazz Educator’s Network [2012 & 2016], ACDA Central Division Conference [2002 & 2012], IAJE international convention in New York City (2001) and San Diego (1989), and six times at the Illinois State Music Educator's Association state conference in Peoria. OneVoice has traveled and performed in the Dominican Republic four times, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and twice in Santiago, Chile. Over the years, OneVoice has consistently been recognized as one of the premier collegiate vocal jazz groups in the United States, most recently by DownBeat Magazine in its June 2017 issue. OneVoice's seventh recording, Otono, is available on iTunes.and Spotify. Recordings from last year can be heard on our Facebook page.
