2020 Census

The next census will start in March 2020. Make sure that you are counted to get your fair share of resources and representation!

We practice on Tuesdays at 7pm at the Tahoma Unitarian Universalist Congregation 1115 S. 56th St. Tacoma, WA 98408. 


When you arrive, we will ask for your name, phone number and email address before welcoming you to the circle to sing with us.  That's all that's required to join!  

This is not your typical choir.  There's no audition, no registration fees, and no musical training required.  We don't use sheet music and we create a lot of our own songs through improvisation and a collaborative process.


We have worked hard to create a welcoming environment and we hope you will quickly feel the love and acceptance in the room.

Join the Choir

Financial support is crucial to keeping this program FREE and accessible to people in our community regardless of means.  Participation in the choir and concerts are currently free due to generous support from our community.

Your donation supports rehearsal space, concert venues, musicians, sound and lighting, snacks for rehearsals, outreach efforts, transportation, songwriting workshops, performances at community events,

partnerships that allow us to connect members with community resources, and much more.  

Will you please help us raise our voice for our community with your donation? 

In addition to making a financial donation,

you can also support the Tacoma Refugee Choir by:

  • Hosting a Facebook fundraiser on our behalf.  You will find us registered as the Refugee Choir Project and we will receive 100% of the funds collected in your honor

  • Shopping on Amazon using Amazon Smile.  We will receive 0.5% of your purchase total if you enter Refugee Choir Project as the recipient

  • Attend our performances and other events!

Make a Donation

Our current needs are:

  • Community members who are passionate about our mission to join our board of directors. We especially are seeking board members with legal expertise, leadership, public relations, public service, health care, and education backgrounds.

  • Youth who are passionate about diversity and music to join our youth advisory board (beginning in Fall 2019- details coming soon)

  • Volunteers to supervise choir members' children during rehearsals.  

  • Videographers, editors and writers who would like to volunteer time and expertise to share the stories of members of our community.

  • Instrumentalists and solo artists interested in collaborating


If you have more ideas on how you can help, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Most importantly, you can join our mission by choosing to serve in our community.  Reach out to someone in need, say hello to someone new and do your part to make our community a more welcoming place!
