About Justice Choir Grand Rapids
Justice Choir GR produces multimedia performances to grow justice in our community and advocate with art. A chapter of the national Justice Choir movement, we were the first to hold choral concerts in addition to our mobile advocacy.
We believe that advocacy should be accessible. All voices are welcome, and no auditions or membership dues are required. If you have a passion for justice and an interest in singing, you have a place here. Learn how to get involved!
Our annual concert series showcases full-length productions featuring entertainment and education around modern issues of justice, produced in collaboration with our community partners and featuring local artists.
Our singers perform at a variety of events in the name of justice. Past partnerships include March for Our Lives Grand Rapids, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America's Wear Orange event, and Access of West Michigan's Walk for Good Food.
