About Us

New West’s mission is to “Bless people of all ages, leading them to experience love through music, community, and compassionate giving”.

New West Society features three distinct divisions:

New West Symphony & Chorus – a vibrant, adult-based choir and orchestra that has been blessing people since 2010
New West Student Ensemble – a dynamic choir and orchestra for students in Grades 7-12
New West Music Academy – a place for students of all ages to gain skills in singing and a variety of instruments

We are a faith-based community organization that is committed to blessing people of all ages through  music.  Our volunteer members are committed to collectively pursuing excellence, fostering a sense of belonging, and being fun and inspiring. Established as a charitable organization, New West Society believes in using our platform to support organizations that serve the vulnerable, both in our city and around the globe.
