The mission of The Choristers is to foster an appreciation of music within the community by offering performances of challenging and/or unjustly neglected choral works at a high standard of musicianship.
The choir accomplishes this mission by:
- Promoting the sense of community that the arts can create when people come together to rehearse, perform, hear and experience a concert.
- Providing singers the opportunity to use and expand their musical abilities through rehearsals, education and performances of great choral works.
- Maintaining a high level of choral competence within a supportive environment that acknowledges the discipline needed to learn and perform such works.
- Placing programmed works in their historical, cultural and musical context for the audience’s greater understanding and appreciation of music.
"The feeling of accomplishment and achievement when you master a difficult piece or learn a piece that has a strong, personal meaning to you, and are able to perform it with confidence and joy in public, that’s the most rewarding experience of all! I think, at least for me, I find the harmony and wholeness that is often lacking in the world around us."
- Doris Brown, Alto
