The Tacoma Refugee Choir is firmly committed to diversity, equity, access and inclusion and strives to embed these principles in everything they do. This includes their approach to singing. To provide a more equitable and welcoming space: No audition is required, musical training is not needed, and participation is free. Their repertoire includes songs that speak of love, hope, social justice, commitment, and belonging. Many songs are sung in English and members will sometimes share songs in their native tongues. Additionally, they co-create original songs with members based on their stories and experiences.
This performance video takes a stand against anti-Asian and Pacific Islander violence and was produced this past summer.
