About Us

Known - to be recognized, understood, or validated. Jer. 29:11

​KNOWN, Mpls is an audition-based, Twin Cities community youth choir under the direction of Courtland Pickens. The choral ensemble was established, in the later part of 2019, as an extension of Voicez, Inc., a 501C, non-profit music organization striving to train and develop the next generation of singers and composers throughout the Twin Cities Area. We utilize performance-based music education to galvanize youth between the ages of 12-25 as agents of change by promoting self-esteem, leadership skills, cultural awareness, discipline and a commitment to excellence

In the choir’s short time in existence, Known has opened in concert for Grammy award-winners LeAndria Johnson and PJ Morton, and nominees, Jonathan McReynolds and Vanessa Bell Armstrong. Known has performed alongside the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra at The Ordway Theater as well as The Armory. Known has recorded music with Lil Jamez and Darnel Davis and the Remnant.
