Memorial MS presents, “Choirs Won’t Be Silenced”


The Hilliard Memorial Middle School Choirs are so excited to be a part of the WORLD PREMIERE of “Choirs Won’t Be Silenced” by Chris Maunu.

A big thank you to Chris for allowing us to be a part of this special song. 

Every single singer connected with these words in such an intimate way, especially when we started to take scope of what this last year has been like for all of us as musicians AND humans.

Choirs are living, breathing miracles, where people from every walk of life, every race, every socio-economic background comes together for one purpose; to create beauty with our voices. Never again will we take this honor and privilege for granted.

“Through song, we will carry on. Sana animam meam, heal me. Heal my soul.”
