Welcome to the St. Louis Peace Choir, a small, independent choral group of socially-conscious singers that meets monthly both for the joy of learning to harmonize with others (SATB) and to build a lasting free repository of egalitarian/peace songs appropriate for public schools.
- As a circle choir, we give no concerts. Each monthly work-session is its own event.
- Any adult is welcome to participate without experience and without audition. There are no attendance obligations. Singers LEARN THEIR PARTS ONLINE at home during the previous weeks so that our short time together is productive.
- We are part of the peace movement. We work to maintain a free REPOSITORY of short, secular, egalitarian songs appropriate for public schools. We encourage people to write and contribute copyright-free peace songs for us to learn. Every month we record and upload one such song to the world.
- The choir is organized as a diverse, member-led democracy. Responsibilities such as directing and music selection are shared. We follow the precept that singers should never be expected to sing words that they wouldn’t want to speak.
There are some things in life that just can’t be learned well from books. Choral singing is one of them. So learn with us. Join our small circle choir of socially-conscious musicians who meet monthly to blend voices. Be the harmony. Membership is free but registration is required. Send request with name and email address to: sing@STLpeacechoir.org. (You’ll receive a monthly reminder with links to the music before each Choral Gathering, plus any important messages such as snow cancellations.)
