Singing for Peace – NM Peace Choir

There is a crying need for more hope, kindness, and unity in our world today.  Don’t you agree?   And research and experience tell us that music has a remarkable ability to speak to our souls. This is the mission of the New Mexico Peace Choir!   The lyrics of one of our songs “Why We Sing” by Greg Gilpin says it best:  “Music builds a bridge. It can tear down a wall. Music is a language that can speak to one and all. This is why we sing.” Help us in our mission to inspire peace and positive change in our world through the healing power of music!

The New Mexico Peace Choir’s mission statement: "By our intentions, by our actions and by our voices, we will help make a positive change in the collective consciousness."

The NM Peace Choir is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that is neither politically nor religiously affiliated. The choir began as the long-time vision of our Founder and Director, Christy Conduff, to form an inclusive choir that would inspire peace, joy, and help raise social awareness. With the help and support of several local churches, organizations, and individuals, we have experienced exponential growth in singers and audience attendance since our founding in December 2015.   Through our concert performances and flash mobs, from Albuquerque and Santa Fe to Vienna, Austria and the Czech Republic, we are making a difference in people’s lives.

The response we have received in these last two years has been both humbling and encouraging. We believe there is a true need for the love and inspiration that the choir fosters. We also know we have much more to offer. We just need some help getting there.

How will donated funds be used?

-        Production of CDs: After our most recent concert season, we received several requests for CDs. We would be thrilled if the people who feel inspired by the music we sing could take some of it home with them.

-        Portable lighting and sound equipment: We are often invited to sing at locations that are not designed with choir performance in mind, especially outdoor spaces.  Having our own equipment would allow us more flexibility in where we can successfully perform.

-        Bus/Busses: So far, the majority of our performances have taken place in either Albuquerque or Santa Fe, and our European tour was funded by our singers. As the New Mexico Peace Choir, we would like to travel throughout the Southwest.  Funds to lease busses would allow us to take our mission to other parts of our region.
