 © International Peace Choir, 1987-2019

Founded in Long Beach, California in 1987, our mission is to promote world peace with our theme song, "Let There Be Peace On Earth and Let It Begin With Me." Each five through seventeen year old child represents the country of his or her own ethnic, cultural, or national background. The clothes they wear are carefully researched and designed. These costumes introduce our audiences to the dress and costumes of distant lands. Beyond the commitment of scheduled rehearsals and performances, every child has a depth of conviction that contributes to the vision and success of our choir.

We have performed for presidents, kings and queens; performed at Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm; recorded with noted personalities; sung on the "Hour of Power"; and were part of the Easter Sunrise Service at the Hollywood Bowl. We have traveled to Australia to sing at the World Expo, performed for Pope John Paul II on his historic visit to America and at Anaheim Stadium for the "Desert Storm Salute."

We have performed at the Opening Ceremonies at Dodger Stadium for the 1991 Olympic Festival, and were part of the Rebuild Los Angeles "Stand and Be Proud" video at the Hollywood Bowl. We did a benefit concert for the Crippled Children's Society, telethons and promotional work for the "Retinitis Pigmentosa Foundation," and helped "Operation Christmas Child" each year. The choir has also appeared on the Children's Miracle Network Telethon with Donny Osmond; in a United Nations' program with Julie Andrews; and were part of UNICEF program in a "Tribute to Audrey Hepburn." We were proud to be selected to appear in the return engagement of "Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at the Pantages Theater. We have also performed in Coca-Cola's "Salute to the Olympians" at the Sports Arena and at the Olympic Torch Run at the Coliseum.

We also went to Washington, D.C. where we were the only California group to participate in the massed choir at the "Stand for Children" program at the Lincoln Memorial. The trip was highlighted by our performance at the Kennedy Center and at Former President Clinton's church. The choir has also recorded the "Peace on Earth" CD with Kitaro and toured the west coast with him.

Our history is rich and beautiful and we plan to continue building for the future. With our beautiful songs of love and peace, our goal can one day be accomplished.
