We believe that we have the opportunity to be a living metaphor that celebrates unity in a world driven by separation, fear, and isolation. We believe that fostering and embracing the music of emerging composers is critical to our art form. We believe that our community deserves to hear the greatest performances of new choral music. We believe that passion and sincerity should be at the forefront of all musical endeavors. We are Choral Arts Initiative.
Choral Arts Initiative is a non-profit 501(c)(3) choral organization made up of some of the most talented and passionate musicians in the Southern California region. Widely recognized as a champion of new music, Choral Arts Initiative has been hailed as one of Orange County’s Best Choirs (CBS News, Los Angeles), won the American Prize in Choral Performance, and received the ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming.
Choral Arts Initiative released its inaugural album, "How to Go On: The Choral Works of Dale Trumbore" which ranked #6 on the Billboard Charts (Traditional Classical Albums) and was the #4 Best Seller on iTunes Classical Charts. Their passion for new music has led to the commission of seventeen compositions and the premiere of over fifty works.
