Nurturing the Human Spirit through the Arts
Arts for the Soul celebrates the power of the arts to touch our human spirits in meaningful, energizing and enlarging ways. The arts have the potential to by-pass the clutter in our minds, focus us in the present moment and open our souls to new awareness, purpose and meaning in our lives. Arts for the Soul promotes all forms of art which encourage a healing connection with a transcendent presence, with others, and with our own best selves.

We are pleased to announce that our first endorsement is of Seicento Baroque Ensemble, a 24 voice semi-professional, auditioned chamber choir specializing in the 17th and 18th century music and historically informed Baroque performance practices.
