Our mission

To build a more welcoming community through song

Tacoma Refugee Choir Project relies on donations to carry forth our mission of spreading compassion and kindness through song.  100% of all donations go directly to our efforts and are tax-deductible.

About our choir

Tacoma Refugee Choir is a diverse, non-auditioned choral ensemble dedicated to using music’s exceptional power to foster unity, joy, and meaningful action and dialogue.

Our name originates from a desire to stand with political refugees specifically, but we are committed to embracing anyone who has been estranged, persecuted, or harmed by various forms of injustice, as well as those who wish to offer solidarity and support.


  • Perform songs from the pop music canon, the most widely familiar musical language in America
  • Rehearse and perform with a live band representing instruments, styles, and techniques from throughout the world
  • Sing without judgment and value growth over perfection
  • Invite audiences into our welcoming community through sing-alongs within every performance
