Echoes of Peace Choir
We began in the Spring of 2002 and the last season of the Echoes of Peace Choir was held in the Spring of 2023. 21 years!
Though we are no longer meeting as a choir, Sara Thomsen is still rousing people to sing together in community at concerts, gatherings, and community events. Check Sara's music website for details: sarathomsen.com
This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board,
thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
And funded in part by the Community Opportunity Fund from the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
“Sing because it is food this starving world needs.” —Hafiz
The Echoes of Peace organization began with a choir. We sing songs from around the world, songs that call for justice and vision peace, songs of hope and longing, and songs that are simply fun and full of celebration. We come together to sing in harmony as a means of personal, local and global transformation. We sing to open the heart and re-enchant the spirit.
We are a non-audition community singing group where anyone with a desire to sing is welcome to join. No previous singing or music reading experience required. Echoes of Peace Choir is a member of the Ubuntu Choirs Network, a “growing community of choirs who believes that the joy of singing is a universal birthright, and that together, regardless of musical background, we can help improve the world by joining voices in song.” Based in the Twin Ports of Duluth, MN/Superior, WI, the choir is directed by singer-songwriter Sara Thomsen. Sara is a graduate of the Ubuntu Network's Community Choir Leadership Training.
