Ars Choralis is known for concerts weaving together choral music and the spoken word.
Examples of this concert format include American Christmas Cameos,
where excerpts from historic diaries were read alongside
musical images of Americana. Messengers of Peace,
concerts created to further human harmony,
combined music with inspiring quotes of well-known authors.

Music in Desperate Times was a Holocaust themed concert
honoring the women who played in the orchestra at Birkenau during WWII.
Quotes from their writings and biographies were interspersed with choral and orchestral music.
