Reflections

Read what our members have to say about us!


"Joining the Peace Choir has been a great way for me to stay musical in my busy life! I love the challenge of learning new music and working on improving my singing skills, and it is combined with such a loving, supportive, and affirming community of people. It’s also been a great way to meet more people and feel connected to my broader community. This year, it's been especially nice since my mom is singing with me too!"
 -Nora, choir member since 2016 

"I get so much joy from being a part of this group of people joining together to listen to and sing with each other, working together to convey shared ideals. At the end of a workday, it's wonderful to be able to relax into a group of various but likeminded people who extend to each other such courtesy and good citizenship within our small community. Having been involved in music for most of my life, I can say that we are truly blessed to have one of the best directors I have ever worked with." 
 -Genny, choir member since 2012

"I have been in The Olympia Peace Choir for 4 years, and it has given me lots of opportunity for growth as a musician. Whether or not you have been involved in music for most of your life or wanting to start, this choir has something for everyone. It's been a rewarding journey these past 4 years, lending my voice to a large group and creating music with a meaningful message. The opportunity to play guitar or any other instrument on selected songs is a true testament to the all inclusiveness of this group. We have fun preparing these songs to perform in public to share our message of peace, social justice and environmental stewardship. I am so grateful to be a part of this choir." 
 -Andrew, choir member since 2014

"The Olympia Peace Choir is the first organization I joined after moving to Olympia. It not only became a place where I felt welcomed and made friends, but it allowed me to experience the joy of singing in a choir. I had not done any singing before, and was not confident that I was "good enough" for that. I have learned that singing comes from your heart and with that have been able to experience so very much through this choir."
 -Lee Ann, choir member since 2014

"I have found my voice! Singing with the Olympia Peace Choir and adding my one voice to that of 100-strong has been empowering beyond belief. What a joy to feel that I am contributing to the world in such a positive way.
 -Angela, choir member since 2014
