Our Mission

Make the world a kinder, more inclusive place, one song at a time.

Our Values

Puget Soundworks is built on the following values: 

  • LGBTQIA+ centered: Working towards dismantling the gender boundaries & language traditionally found in choral music. Provide a welcoming, safe space for all gender identities and sexual orientations. 
  • Kindness is key: Everyone speaks and acts in a way that is respectful and compassionate. 
  • Create beautiful music: We love to sing and use music to spread joy and laughter, open hearts and minds, and entertain our audience. 
  • Lift up marginalized voices: Use our musical platform to expand visibility for those who are transgender, non-binary, or genderqueer; women; people of color.
  • Appreciate and inspire transparency: Transparency implies openness, communication, and accountability. 
  • Put singers first: Design communication, operations, and programming with singer empathy top of mind.
