Open exclusively to members of Execs Connect, this bi-monthly networking event connects San Diego’s top business executives, elected officials, and military leaders. Execs Connect focuses on building lasting relationships through quality networking and access to thought-provoking speakers.
We are excited to announce that we’re taking this month’s Execs Connect virtual! Join us to hear from Steph Johnson, Executive and Creative Director for Voices of Our City Choir.
In 2016, Johnson started a choir for people experiencing homelessness with Nina Deering. Today, the Voices of Our City Choir has swelled to 225 members and helped over 60 of its members get off the street and into housing. Johnson became a spokesperson and the choir became a symbol of what a grassroots effort can accomplish. Johnson and members of her staff sit on local homeless committees and boards, and advise the city council and the mayor’s office on issues.
In addition to advocacy, Voices of Our City is an inspirational musical ensemble that has garnered plenty of headlines. The choir has been the focus of a documentary that aired nationally on PBS stations. The group has performed with the San Diego Symphony and opened a benefit concert at the historic Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles on a bill that featured Jason Mraz and founding members of the Doors. Most recently the choir auditioned for Season 15 of America’s Got Talent.
Steph Johnson turned the choir into a nonprofit and serves as both Executive Director and Creative Director.
Date: November 5, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.
