Your donation means we can continue to bring awareness to social justice through our unique choral experiences.

Our semi-annual concerts reflect our multi-cultural, multi-national focus with repertoires that range from spirituals and gospel to Mozart and Verdi, from South African freedom songs to original works by our director Frederick West.

Our long tradition of community and peace activism includes singing at peace rallies, marches and demonstrations. Most recently, our Action Ensemble we sang at the March for Science, the Black Lives Matter rally, and the Womxn's March and recently returned from a goodwill peace tour to Cuba.

Verdi for the People: Requiem of Resistance

“Remember!” Music honoring the Jewish diaspora:

  • Messa da Requiem, by Giuseppe Verdi
  • Traditional Jewish songs

This stirring music will honor the strength of the human spirit and the power of music to keep that spirit alive during the darkest times. Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa Requiem was memorized and performed by prisoners in the Terezin Nazi concentration camp.

Thank you everyone who helped produce our fundraising dinner, Feast for Peace, and everyone who gave to support the Seattle Peace Chorus.

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.
