The Northwest is proud to be the home base of the
Island Choral Experience, one of the nation's renown youth musical organizations.
ICE is a community based choral and performing arts company that has been in existence for over twenty years.
Island Choral Experience have been lauded for performances at the White House, the Goodwill Games, and locally, singing the national anthem at the Mariner's Sonics and Seahawks games. They have been featured performers in KOMO's TV special, "The Miracle Season", and KING TV's
"WinterFest". Members of two of the organization's choirs,
Island Sound and Island Girls Choir, were selected to perform with the New York touring company of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat" at Seattle's Paramount Theater. These choirs have toured in cities across America.
Performances by the Island Choral Experience choirs are unique in that they feature young artists combining choral excellence, vibrant movement and colorful costuming. In addition to twice-yearly concert seasons the choirs perform for community groups, schools, retirement homes and other organizations. The extensive repertoire for each season includes contemporary and classical music as well as original choreography.
Island Choral Experience is a non-profit organization, governed by a Board of Directors comprised of choir parents, past parents and members of the community. The young musicians are guided by
a gifted team of dedicated professionals, who in turn, are supported by the efforts of volunteers devoting hundreds of hours to make the choral experience meaningful, educational and fun.
"I value what (my daughter) has gained in musical and performing skills.....But just as
important, really more important to me, is the nurturing, mentoring, and role models she
is afforded through the staff.....She knows that there are standards she is expected to keep and it is important to her to meet those standards. The staff's unwavering stance on the
unacceptability of teasing/derogatory comments combined with your encouragement of
team effort and being supportive of other choir members' efforts make choir an environment
where members can feel at home."
