Voices for Peace

Voices for Peace is a women’s vocal ensemble with a purpose and a mission. Trough music they hope to bring a greater awareness of peace and justice to individual lives, and eventually turn that awareness into actionfor the greater good.  Founder and artistic director Gretchen Ecles believes that once a song makes its way into a person’s head, it can also make its way to their heart, and therefore affect real change in indivual behaviors.

Founded in 2006, the group is a collection of women of all ages, ranging from 21-81 who come from different backgrounds and faith traditions. What these women share is a passion for promoting peace through song and the understanding of their mission statement which states: “The notion of peace is not one defined by age, color or creed. It is a notion shared across generations by those who want to see a world free from war and violence.  It is a notion that requires hope and determination.  Singing is the vehicle through which Voices for Peace promotes their message, which is fitting since music in itself is an expression of peace, beauty and harmony.”

Voices for Peace is a non-audition choir, with no experience required and is always welcoming new members. They perform 4-5 times a year at various peace festivals throughout the state, sharing classic peace and justice songs from the 1960’s – 70’s.
