Soromundi’s Board of Directors recently formed a Diversity Committee whose charge is to increase knowledge and implementation of Social Justice, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) goals.
Once a month this summer, choristers from around Oregon gathered via Zoom for a “Community Sing,” a virtual guided practice session of protest and social justice songs. Directors brought songs, in simple arrangement and in the public domain or donated by the arranger, so the music could be shared and used in any situation.
Soromundi will have a 2020-21 season, but it will look very different than usual, board president Kate Barry has announced. While members will learn new music, fall will consist largely remote and online activities.
The Marketing Committee is planning several initiatives that we hope will bring together Mundis past and present and help us to nurture a sense of community during challenging times.
