he Millennium Choir symbolizes peace in the world and the determination to enter the New Millennium with renewed hope for a better world and prayer to the Supreme Spirit.

The Millennium Choir is a multi-ethnic group of approximately 600 male & female singers (and counting!!!) from different musical and religious backgrounds and with various types of training. The choir presents an unusual blend and texture of voices with a mixture of classical and more contemporary-pop flavors, including a strong gospel influence. Until a few months ago, the MILLENNIUM CHOIR was active only as a "recording" choir within the Los Angeles studios. However, on Christmas Day 1999 the MILLENNIUM CHOIR performed live for the first time at the Vatican (see photo)
in a worldwide telecast as the official choir for the evening. The MILLENNIUM CHOIR has already recorded a CD entitled "Magnificat" (release date in the U.S.: November 3, 2000) with 11 selections: over an hour of music for choir and orchestra, as well as for lead tenor, choir and orchestra, in Latin and Italian. In addition to several more recordings, including a new Mass, the choir is currently performing within the Los Angeles area as well as overseas: last August, the Millennium Choir was invited to participate in the "Giornata Mondiale Della Gioventu`" ("International Youth Day") in Rome, where it performed for the Pope and 2 million young people visiting from all over the world. To learn more about this wonderful group, see our choir page.
