Choir singing with Christmas decorations

Faith. Unity. Music.

These Defining Characteristics Guide Our Mission To Bless The D.C. Area.

Founded in 1980, the choir is composed of singers and musicians selected by audition with a current membership of 80 from approximately 50 congregations in the Maryland and Virginia regions of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Our repertoire includes a wide variety of secular and sacred music including major choral works of noted composers, show tunes, Americana and patriotic compositions, and sacred hymns.
