Let Us Be United

We hope you will enjoy this collection of wonderful songs from ten countries, all favorites of World Children's Choir singers. The singers range in age from five to seventeen. Let Us Be United was released to celebrate the World Children's Choir Seventeenth Anniversary Season, and WCC's new program, Music at the Heart of Literacy, that provides free cultural activities for children age 8 - 12 from financially disadvantaged families living in Washington, DC and Northern Virginia.

Sondra Harnes, WCC Founder/Artistic Director



This wonderful collection of international folk songs, classical vocal repertoire, and inspirational songs is filled with an engaging variety of style, mood, and message. These songs from many lands, in many languages, are filled with the sheer joy of being alive and of being able to celebrate life together. In these songs, the children share the stories and the truths that remind us that inside we are all the same.
