Committed to a brighter future for our world, The Choral Project makes yearly contributions to charitable organizations. These contributions include Toys-for-Tots, Resource Area for Teachers, Aris, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, The Rain Forest Project, and SARDUS (Search and Rescue Dogs of the United States).
Our Mission Statement: To heal the world through music and words, weaving powerful choral works with a flowing narration of prose and poetry, creating an evocative tapestry illustrating how more alike we are than different. No matter where or when in the world we may be, we are all affected by the basic organic and spiritual forces that motivate and inspire us, and we are equally touched on the same level by these similar universal themes.
