The Bloomington Peace Choir began in April 2010 as a community choir open to all voices. Our members come from many backgrounds, and have no particular religious affiliation, so we strive to be a place where all singers are welcome. Our music varies from American folk music, to South African freedom songs, to songs that embrace themes of peace.
The choir meets year-round, with concerts in the spring and fall. We sing at area events and believe in “singing when asked to”, or SWAT. As a part of our community outreach, the Bloomington Peace Choir performs regularly at area nursing homes, community celebrations and we have offered monthly lunch hour sings at city hall. If you find yourself at one of our concerts, don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing along, our enthusiasm is hard to resist! You may find you’ll want to join us and become a member.
We welcome new voices at all times, but encourage new members to join us at the start of each season, as we introduce new repertoire for our concerts. Because some of our singers have never been in a choir before, we focus on encouragement, listening and learning about the joys of singing together. We started a choir and created a community!!
Weekly rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 pm at Unity of Bloomington, 4001 S Rogers St, Bloomington IN. Our event calendar can be found on bloomingtonpeacechoir.org. Sing, just for the joy of it!!
