Peace and Justice Concert with The World House Choir | Thursday, Sept.19 | Choral

The World House Choir’s mission is to perform music that motivates and inspires our communities toward justice, diversity, and equality as we strive for peace and create our web of mutuality. They are associated with “Arts for Peace and Justice,” a non-profit association in Yellow Springs  created to promote and unite progressive arts movements for peace justice and social change with an emphasis on the choral arts and people’s music. The name “World House Choir” is rooted in Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s metaphor that we must create a “world house” in which we all live together in peace and justice.
