A message from our Artistic Director

mark

For the past 10 years, I have dreamed of starting my own choral ensemble. Even though I wasn't sure what that would look like, the number of singers, or even the musical genres we would sing, I have kept my dream alive. After moving to New Zealand in July 2015,  many months of planning, creating, and talking to a lot of New Zealanders, my dream is set in motion.

Inspirare literally means "to breathe or inhale". When we are inspired, we breathe in the results of someone's work. During my years as an artist, I have come to realize that without inspiration, we would have not have goals, reasons to perform, or desires to pass on our gifts to others. We all began by being inspired by a special performance, a loved one who sang/played for us, or by that special music teacher during our educational years. For many of us, that initial impression caused us to pursue musical careers with the aid of our teachers and mentors. After many years of joy (and sometimes sorrow), we began the journey of being artists: striving to inspire others because we had been inspired. We all know someone who has been touched by our artistry, so the cycle is never ending. What better way to express this choral ensemble's thoughts and vision!

My personal goal is to bring together artists who are willing to share their musical inspirations with our audiences. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to further  hone our skills and embark on a journey of adventure, excitement, and inspiration.
