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.
