Mission and History


The mission of the Sea Change Chorale of Portland, Maine is to promote social justice through song. We are dedicated to musical excellence and to creating an experience that inspires, heals, offers visibility, and promotes a sense of community for our members and our audience. We come from a range of spiritual traditions, political values, life experiences and musical abilities.

Our unity comes from a deep and abiding love of song that honors the enduring spirit of all people and from a commitment to helping others.

We formed in the summer of 2014 as the Phoenix Chorale and recently re-organized as the Sea Change Chorale in 2017. One of our primary activities is our social justice partnership with a local organization, which culminates in a spring concert to raise funds and awareness for that organization. We also participate in a number of other events during the year to honor our commitment to social justice in Maine and beyond.
