Why Music, Why Ensign Symphony & Chorus?

The ancient Greek philosophers, Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle, are credited with laying the philosophical foundations of the Western world.  Plato said:

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”


Everything, indeed.

Plato knew that what we see, smell, taste and touch is but a clue - a hint or shadow of so much more. So it is with music that inspires us to feel and comprehend so much in what we hear.

The mission of Ensign is to bless and uplift audiences in the greater Puget Sound region though professional quality performances of inspiring sacred and secular music. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on the support of our audience and community. Our entirely volunteer leadership staff, Board of Directors, and performers believe passionately in the power of music to bless the life of each member of our audience. Your generous donation helps us provide extraordinary performances at world-class venues, purchase orchestral instruments, and reach out across our region to all those who hunger for the "music that matters and lyrics that inspire."
