Choral Singers of Marin has a very profound mission statement: "Appreciating that music is the language of soul, through our singing we will nurture people of all ages as we touch the heart with beauty and uplift the spirit with joyful song" The association of choruses support age groups from 5 years to 80. They have an incredible reach and impact on the Marin County area. My interest and knowledge stem from the youth choirs. There are 5 various choirs catering to various age groups. They perform locally and globally inspiring all generations and ethnic backgrounds. The youth choirs are a wonderful alternative and addition to kids educational development including leadership, exposure, confidence and sharing. I am incredibly inspired by the tireless and selflessness attributed to the team that year after year bring music to the community. But they don't stop with just local inspirations at elderly homes, community centers, baseball games and other various venues, they travel to places like South Africa, Austria and Germany. They compete in Olympic Choir Games among hundreds of groups from 100's countries sharing the inspiration and vision "that music is the language of the soul". I believe the mission statement is understated. Singers of Marin is an inspiration and a gift that keeps giving.
