Our chorus is made up of folks just about like you. We support our activities and expenses with year-long pledges. Dues are on a sliding scale; no one is turned away due to finances or experience.  We are a non-auditioned mixed-voice community chorus of peace and justice activists.  People who have trouble hearing/matching pitch may be asked to do extra work or confer with the director for determination of appropriate learning tools.
We ask for a 9-month comittment to membership, rehearsals and performances.

See links above for sample rehearsal/performance schedule & member guidelines.
ENROLLMENT OPENS AGAIN IN AUGUST 2014* except by persmission of the director.

Our Mission:

We sing to support & promote both local and worldwide struggles for peace & social justice.

We sing to celebrate what one choir director once described as "The Full Cup of Life:  birth, death, joy, sorrow, struggle, triumph, work, play, love, and community!"

Our goal is to enlighten as well as to entertain.  We are open to anyone who wants to sing with us and do not hold auditions. We sing at community events, soup kitchens, street demonstrations, concerts, and more.
