We believe that our community deserves to hear the greatest performances of new choral music. We believe that passion and sincerity should be at the forefront of all musical endeavors.
We are Choral Arts Initiative.

Access, Inclusion & Equity
If diversity is about bringing different people to the table, inclusion is about ensuring every voice at that table has a voice that is valued and heard. It is for these reasons that we believe inclusion is where the work truly begins for our organization. We believe that ensuring everyone feels as though they belong is essential for our organization and the well-being of every member of the Choral Arts Initiative family.
