2019 - Norway Tour

We are so excited to share with you plans for next summer's tour of Norway. There are some truly amazing opportunities coming our way! Beyond the beauty of Norway (which is astounding) we are arranging once-in-a-lifetime experiences that you won't want to miss. Imagine what spending time and singing with a choir made up entirely of refugees from countries around the globe will be like. The chance to learn, to share and create together, culminating in songs that unify, simply WOW. That is just one of our singing adventures. Speaking of adventures, one of our longer-stay locations is at Rondane Hoyfjellshotell. You can check out a video here (Rondane Høyfjellshotell) giving you a glimpse of that stay, but there is so much more. Take a look at the brochure giving more details of the upcoming trip, along with dates and costs. [Detailed Information can be found here.]

We hope to see you soon.

It is through song that we will change the world...

Let us make that so,

Kulshan Chorus embarks on self-funded tours to bring music to others and engage in cultural exchanges. All chorus members who take part in these tours are required to front their own costs. In the past we have enjoyed Croatia, France, Ecuador, Romania, Switzerland, Costa Rica and several other areas. Listening to the music of a culture is one of the truest ways of understanding people.

We visit and perform for rural groups and communities that have seldom had the opportunity to engage in cultural/musical exchange. We share the Spirit and Soul of the Kulshan Chorus in churches, caves, sea ports, mountain tops, islands, castles, towers dating to before Christ, markets, and old town squares. We learn indigenous songs to perform and meet and learn from numerous local folklore dance and singing groups.

We have also had the opportunity to reciprocate for the hospitality the Kulshan Chorus received while touring Ecuador by welcoming a group of dancers and musicians from that country. We watched them perform and celebrated with them.

Community

Every year Kulshan Chorus takes part in Bellingham's Martin Luther King Celebration. For the chorus reaching out to the community takes many forms. From celebrations, to peace marches, fundraisers, food drives and raising awareness. Last Spring a portion of the concerts proceeds were dedicated to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services and Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center. It is the intent of the chorus to give back to the community, and support it through music, and the celebration of the common bonds of humanity.
