Choir for Peace seeks art

Choir for Peace, a collaboration between the Kenai Peninsula Community Chorus under the umbrella of Pier One Theatre and the Homer High School Concert Choir, seeks art on the theme “‘Peace: personal, community, or global” to be displayed in the Commons of the Homer High School Mariner Theatre at concerts on May 3 and 4.

The Choir for Peace project brings together people from Homer, Anchor Point, Fritz Creek, and Soldotna, with a wide range of ages, backgrounds, political and religious beliefs, and singing experience.

The choir’s goal is to use the power of music and the arts to spread peace and kindness, beginning with ourselves and working outward into the community and the world.

Art on display at the Choir for Peace concerts will be for sale, with proceeds donated to the Global Arts Corps.
