Syracuse Community Choir: 1985-2005
20 Years of Singing For Peace and Justice


In 1985, a group of activists organized a peace festival in Thornden Park and Karen Mihalyi started a peace and justice choir.Her dream was to create an arts organization that would not only include anyone who wanted to sing, but would also build community and provide inspiration for changing the world. Twenty years later, the choir has an impressive list of extraordinary songs, countless events it has organized and supported, hundreds of people who have sung, and thousands of people who have attended events.

Join us for the fall season and help us celebrate this incredible legacy and feat!

We are looking for singers to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary concert scheduled for Saturday December 17 at the Eastwood Palace. A special invitation goes out to anyone who has ever sung (new members are always welcome, of course). First rehearsal is Wednesday October 19, 7:30 pm at the Westcott Community Center, 826 Euclid Ave., Syracuse. Childcare and transportation are provided. The season promises to be filled with beloved songs, remembrances, community and inspiration.

If you want to sing, but are unable to come every week (or live out of town), we've planned a special rehearsal so that you could still sing at the concert. For information, contact Karen Mihalyi at 315-428-8151(Kmihalyi@a-znet.com) or Mardea Warner at 315-479-5757.
