Hope must be kept alive. The people who can keep it alive are artists of one kind or another. The function, of the College Choir has been this: to keep hope alive. The Choir follows the path of music that has been there all the while, waiting to be heard and empowering the listeners to feel the life, within them, all the time. In 1999, Ellerine Diengdoh, a gifted singer, organized the St. Mary’s Choir. Young college musicians set out responsibly and intentionally, under her guidance, to perform at all kinds of functions.
