As our nation reels, first from a pandemic and now from the horrors of recent police brutality and racism, we feel it’s important for us all to remember that the arts are more important to our culture now than ever. They reflect current events and help us heal from them. They provide much-needed humanity, beauty and an escape from fear. Or as Robert L. Lynch, President of Americans for the Arts, said, “The arts empower. The arts give a voice to the voiceless. The arts help transform American communities, and the result can be a better child, a better town, a better nation and certainly a better world.”
The Ann Arbor Youth Chorale stands committed to learning, listening, and growing as an organization and continuing to provide young singers with a safe, diverse, and caring environment. Together we can tear down the walls that separate us and build bridges of goodwill, love, and friendship.
