Join the Seattle Peace Chorus for an exciting evening of travel and adventure to this colorful, culturally diverse Caribbean nation.
In December 2016 The Seattle Peace Chorus embarked on a two-week performance and people-to-people tour of several cities in sunny Cuba, one of the world’s most historically fascinating places.
In this Cuba travelogue evening, SPC members will share stories, remembrances and music from this memorable tour, as well as a Q & A and travel tips for prospective Cuba visitors.
Help the Seattle Peace Chorus
continue its mission
of supporting peace and justice
Dear Supporter of music, peace, and justice,
As Board President, I am writing you today asking for your support of the Seattle Peace Chorus. Our dual mission of striving for musical excellence and of supporting peace and justice makes us unique among Northwest choirs.
Our chorus has participated in many noteworthy events this past year -- events you surely support and encourage. Let me tell you about some of the remarkable things that have happened during our 2015-2016 performance season, thanks to your generous support.
The Peace Chorus invited the public to three major performances:
Plus, we participated in the following events:
I am also eager to share with you our plans for 2017:
We can not do any of this without your support. I hope you agree that the Seattle Peace Chorus makes music and people-to-people connections that are very relevant to the issues of our time. The chorus is 100% volunteer run with a contracted part-time music director. Our income is provided from concert ticket sales, chorus member dues, fundraising events, and grants. However, we rely very much on individual donations from people like you to help close our budget gap.
Please consider making a special year-end tax-deductible gift to help the Chorus continue singing and speaking for peace. You can leverage your donation, if you work for an employer with a matching gift program. Please take the time to put a check in the mail today or make an online donation from our donation page.
If you have further questions, please contact us at email@example.com. Checks should be made out to Seattle Peace Chorus and mailed to P.O. Box 30152, Seattle, WA 98113-0152.
Thank you for your support and have a wonderful, peaceful, holiday season!
Your friend in peace,
|We appreciate your support!|
For both singers and listeners, the Seattle Peace Chorus provides a unique choral experience. Our commitment to peace and social justice creates a special bond among members and with our audience.
Our repertoire, reflecting our multi-cultural, multi-national focus, ranges from spirituals and gospel to Mozart and Beethoven, from South African freedom songs to the original works of our director Fred West.
Performances often include an exciting range of instrumentalists from Cuban drummers to chamber orchestras. This rich variety is sustained by our commitment to using a collaborative process for decision making, enabling members to influence repertoire decisions through a committee that any member can join.
In addition to traveling to countries such as the former Soviet Union, Chile, Cuba, and Venezuela, and performing two major concerts a year, we support peace and community activities by singing at rallies, marches, fundraisers for disaster relief, and similar events.
If our unique approach to choral music appeals to you, consider joining us as a singer, volunteer, or financial supporter—or simply come to our concerts and be inspired.
