Values
Community: We provide musical performances and resources that enhance the lives within our diverse community and promote learning opportunities for all.

Excellence: We celebrate our rich history and are committed to the highest level of artistic, administrative, board and volunteer quality and performance.

Sustainability: We thoughtfully steward the gifts of our donors and responsibly invest in both our future and the subsequent enrichment of our community.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

A Musical Haven for All:

We create a culture that values all employees, singers, board members and volunteers, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes them unique. We actively seek diverse voices for the choir, board of directors, and staff.

We are committed to understanding the ways in which our traditions privilege some communities over others. Our goal is to dismantle any inequities within our organization. As leaders in the choral arts, it is our responsibility to ensure the diversity of our choir and community is reflected in the music we sing and the choral works we commission. We believe that music is a universal language and that when we teach music and lead choral singing, we are building bridges that unite persons, communities, and cultures.
