Inspire is New York City based chamber choir dedicated to cultivating compassion and action for diverse social issues through the power of song. In partnership with organizations seeking positive social change, we encourage individual and collective action on socially pressing issues. We seek to inspire a spirit of unity among our artists, audiences, and wider community.
Their concerts seek to amplify the work of these community partners through the performance of evocative music carefully curated to encourage reflection on the social issues captured by our concert themes. Community building and face-to-face exchange are pillars of their work. As such each concert will be immediately followed by an opportunity to connect with each other—to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences casually over refreshment.
It is their hope that these concert experiences reflect the saying of the late Pierre Boulez that: “One should essentially see concerts as a means of communication, as animated contact between participants, be they listeners or creators.”
