Become a Key Part of our Success

You see more than 130 of us onstage. You probably know we represent nearly 40 countries and languages. You may not realize we actually number closer to 160.

We sing. We are also invisible hands that manage dozens of critical tasks behind the scenes. You may not see us, but we are essential. The choir couldn’t fulfill its mission without us. We do big jobs and small, some year-round, some two or three times a year, some just once. Anyone can be a key part of our success — YOU for example.
