What is the "project"
in the madison choral project?

Our project is to enrich lives in our community
by giving voice to the great music of our diverse world;
to express, to inspire, to heal;
to garner joy in the experience of live music;
and to educate and strengthen the next generation of singers and listeners.  

The madison choral project is not just a choir,
it's a movement to improve our human experience through music.  

 
 

"The program was a bundle of pure bliss, unaccompanied choral sound at its most beautiful."
