    The Peregrine Ensemble

    Telling Stories, Bridging Cultural Divides

    The Peregrine Ensemble tells stories through choral music in imaginative performances that engage audiences and connect communities. Peregrine Ensemble was founded on the core belief that we can better navigate cultural difference, reconcile conflict, & inspire empathy through narrative-based artistic expression and an intentionally connective rehearsal process.
