Assemble of songs about Hope.
Where can we find Hope? Among a thousand stars, amid the splendours of the sun, or from tough times, and from those that have gone before us.
We also seek Hope in finding a new sewing machine for a town, and in finding love with others, through our jobs.
Let’s find Hope together at our annual folk concert featuring Junior’s, Children’s and Youth Choirs.
Throughout the year, choir members have one to two regular weekly rehearsals and occasional additional rehearsals. The program also consists of special rehearsals with a variety of local clinicians, and special camps, workshops and tours.

Members receive outstanding choral technique and musical theory training, perform several times a year, and build lasting relationships.
