Our mission is to advance the choral arts through education, performance, and collaboration at the highest artistic level, fostering individual development and international relationships. 
The choir is a both an educational institution and an arts organization. The two are inextricably linked and intertwined. We believe that music is good for children and choral singing is a deeply wholesome, invigorating, enriching practice.
