Tapestry - Weaving Music With Faith

We invite you to participate in a unique and exciting journey in performing and restoring music from all faith backgrounds. We are in the process of creating a new professional choral group called Tapestry that will sing locally, travel, explore backgrounds, study and teach, question and engage, discover and record the growth of our inner spirits by preserving and finding new musical ways to celebrate historical faith-based music.

Whether you choose to join and sing with us, or wish to make it possible for others to fulfill this musical, your part in this adventure is important!

You will find the music based on so many walks of faith to be a complicated and beautiful study of ancient and modern significance. The experience born from the traditions, text and tonal compositions of ancient works, while sharing ideas and learning through respectful and honest musical expression is exhilerating!

This journey will be one of discovery - of our own faith and each other's. We hope you will be with us on this path as we walk toward increasing interfaith understanding and friendship, applying music as a tool to share with others the wonder and significance of building faith community as no other effort can express.


Our auditions are ongoing, and the limit we currently envision is for 20-24 singers. We ask that singers bring two preparded pieces to perform for us, and some sight-reading may be required during the audition. If you are interested in joining our choir, please contact us via the email address of tapestry@exploringcommunity.org.


Our planned concert tours will cover the United States and some portions of Canada. It will be an active time, some physical endurance required, as we will be spontaneous in presenting flash concerts, and programs for small churches, temples, synagogues and other houses of prayer that have no choir of their own.  Not just a choral presentation, this is a learning excursion, including time in a working with other people of faith, studying scripture, tradition and cultures as we travel. All who are interested in learning more about the adventuires ahead are welcome to contact us.

Each choir member will keep a daily journal, from which a study guide will be developed by the IRC staff and advisors which will accompany a video of our daily adventures. We have discovered that our exploration of the concepts of community, and bringing together people of faith is of great interest to public broadcasting media, and we are excited about the potential for developing nurturing dialogue and programs from our experiences. The number of spaces is limited, so please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to sing and travelwith us.


Without our patrons, who so generously donate the funds necessary for part-time salaries, travel expenses, and even the lesser costs like build repertoire (music can be expensive), explore facilities and share media, we could not continue our work. Please don't assume that there is a gift too small, or that your donations might be used for anything other than our stated mission. We need your participation at many levels, and look forward to sharing faith, friendship, and revelations as we grow. The people are our purpose and the glory is for our Creator.

All of our benefactors will be acknowledged here on our web site, and gifts to Exploring Community, an outreach of Interfaith Renewal Center, Inc., a tax-deductible non-profit organization.
