Intergenerational Outreach Choirs

The mission of IOC is connecting generations through song. We strive to bring together intergenerational members of community through the formation of community choirs, to empower people to develop and value their own voices; to foster mutual understanding and respect among people of all ages and backgrounds, and to be a service to the public through the sharing of music and song.
