Seattle Labor Chorus: Home

Christmas Truce 2014

 

We are the musical voice of labor in Seattle- a chorus of about 40 singers from all walks of life who serve the labor community in song. We appear at rallies, protests, union meetings and on stages around the Seattle area to inspire and educate in four-part harmony. Come out and hear us sing! You can also request a performance for your union or join us in rehearsal. Click on "contact" for several ways to reach us. Also, visit us on Facebook.
