The Rogue Valley Peace Choir is a secular choir dedicated to building peace, equality, social justice, and stewardship of our planet through song. Formed in 2003, the choir does not require auditions and welcomes everyone to join the first Thursday after Labor Day at the First United Methodist Church in Ashland.
The choir performs regularly at events such as World AIDS Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Earth and Arbor Day observances. In 2006 the choir traveled to Japan to sing for peace in Hiroshima. During the 2014-15 season, we hosted a sold-out event at Southern Oregon University featuring peace choirs from throughout the Northwest. One of our greatest joys is singing for (and with) children in elementary schools.
The late Dave Marston directed the choir for the first four years, followed by Heather Hutton for three years. Now in his fifth year as director, Rob Lowry leads the choir with accompanist Mikiko Petrucelli as we continue our mission to sing for peace.
The Rogue Valley Peace Choir is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. For more info including this year’s musical offerings, visit our website at: roguevalleypeacechoir.org.
