Because of the developing SARS-CoV2 virus and the COVID-19 illness that it causes, we urge everyone to be especially careful to take care of yourself and those whom you love. Because of the outbreak, Seattle Peace Chorus will not hold a live fundraising dinner on Saturday 28 March 2020; instead, we invite you to support Seattle Peace Chorus by making an online contribution now. More than ever, singing for peace and justice continues to be vitally important in our world.
