As a non-profit* organization, the International Peace Choir Inc. embraces a vision of worldwide peace. Since its inception in 1987, the International Peace Choir Inc. has continued to focus its efforts on promoting peace, love, and brotherhood through its “Peace Ambassadors” and their performances worldwide. Our theme song, “Let There Be Peace On Earth” is a beautiful reminder that it really does begin with each and every one of us!
The children, our Peace Ambassadors, are between the ages of five and seventeen and proudly represent their diverse heritages and cultural backgrounds. The costumes they wear are carefully researched for authenticity and designed as genuine replicas of the clothing worn on the most festive occasions. This colorful ritual allows our audiences to enjoy a beautiful showcase of traditional costumes from many nearby and distant lands. The Choir also offers the opportunity for national and international performances as a professional touring group. Beyond the commitment of weekly rehearsals and numerous scheduled performances, every child has a true passion and a strong desire to contribute to the vision and success of our mission. Our Choir’s history is rich and meaningful. As we continue to grow and make plans for the future, we have faith that, through our beautiful songs of love and peace, our goal will one day be realized.
The International Peace Choir Inc. is a federally recognized non-profit organization with a 501 (c) (3) status.
As an artistic and cultural resource, The International Peace Choir Inc. joyfully celebrates the many cultural traditions of our world community by building bridges of understanding and tolerance through music, song, and dance. The International Peace Choir Inc. strives to be an active member of the arts community through public and private performances. By nurturing the development of children and youth who, as adults, will perpetuate an appreciation for the arts in their own communities, we tailor each individual performance to our target audience.
