"Thank you for making me feel welcome!! I am a bit of an introvert but the energy in the room was so warm, alive and energetic I felt very much at home. Singing and music has always been important, but singing with a group that sings with their whole selves is something I have been missing.  What an amazing thing you have started here, Karen! I am glad to get to be a part of it.”
ABOUT
We are a Central Arkansas non-auditioned community choir celebrating diversity, encouraging inclusion, and cultivating human connection.

We sing together to show solidarity in our humanness and to promote unity and peace. All are welcome!

Why Sing?
Music is powerful! Singing is uplifting! Singing together is an ancient tradition and a potent tool for unifying and strengthening community.

Our goal is to do just that- to strengthen our community while singing beautiful and uplifting music together.

The Human Together Choir is inclusive and intentionally diverse (drawing people from all cultures, sexual orientations, faiths, abilities) and will focus on deepening our connections as human beings. It is a non-audition choir—no experience necessary.

We sing easy and beautiful songs from all over the world (rhythms, harmonies, chants—from South African freedom songs to American folk) mainly just for the joy and friendship of it…but also for its positive impact on our community!

All level of experience and confidence are welcome and reading sheet music is not required. The choir is taught orally by call-and-response. We learn by ear in 4-part harmony. The mood is comfortable, supportive, non-judgmental, and fun!
Community-focused
We sing to unify and strengthen community rather than primarily for performance.
Inclusive and intentionally diverse
We welcome people from all walks of life, all cultures, races, orientations, faiths, abilities. We believe our differences help us grow as humans, since they provide opportunities to learn to be accepting and become more loving.
Non-Auditioned
All voices are welcome: given the right conditions, all can learn to sing in tune and in harmony.
Socially Engaged
We are actively involved in supporting local charities through vocal outreach and fund-raising concerts.
Focused on Human Connection
We are not a religious group and are not associated with any particular faith. Our only agenda is to remove obstacles for inclusion, respect our differences, deepen our connection as human beings, and have fun!
THE CHOIR
Imagine … a world where every city, town, and neighborhood had a community choir, one where the music of many cultures was celebrated.
Imagine … a non-auditioned choir in your community where all were welcome.
Imagine … that this choir could support and engage in powerful community-based activities.

You don’t have to just imagine! The Human Together Choir is an uplifting non-auditioned community choir for EVERYONE! Our choir is taught orally by call-and-response using songs and chants from many traditions and cultures that evoke serenity, glad hearts, exuberance, and an overall sense of wellbeing. All level of experience and confidence are welcome and reading sheet music is not required. Providing a safe place to sing for all who attend and creating beautiful acapella music together in community are at the heart of each session. Join us, and feel the joy!

Human Together is made possible by choir membership contributions, donations, and in kind support from individuals, families, organizations, and businesses. Thank you for your support in strengthening our community and promoting unity and peace. We are an inclusive singing community. We have a sliding scale to ensure that no one is turned away for lack of funds. Feel free to pay more if you can, less if you need to.

We meet once a week for a 12 week term that culminates in a free concert for the community.
No experience necessary.
Learn by ear in 4-part harmony.
Improve singing. Reduce stress. Make friends!
SINGING IS FOR EVERYONE!   ALL VOICES WELCOME!
MEET THE DIRECTOR
Hello, I’m Karen Saxon, founder and director of the Human Together Choir. I started this choir because I wanted to do something proactive to strengthen our community in Central AR. I believe that spending time together allows us to see our similarities, embrace our diversity, and to find solidarity in our humanness.

Many of us wonder, “How do we connect with people outside our familiar circles?” and “How do we identify others who want to make a difference?” The Human Together Choir is the solution. This choir is a meeting point. It is a hub of kindness and friendship.

I started directing choirs when I was 16 years old and have seen the power of music to uplift and unify. Sometimes, to make a difference, you just have to start with what you have and show up. So, this is me…bringing a song into the center of the city and saying, “Let’s be Human Together. Who will join me?”
