Sharing A New Song is a community chorus founded in 1983 to promote closer relationships between peoples of different countries and cultures—initially for sharing with choruses in the former Soviet Union. Its diverse membership is drawn from the Greater Boston, Massachusetts area and includes teachers, engineers, psychologists, professional musicians, retired seniors, "shower" singers, students and octogenarians (and everywhere in between). In any year, some will be new to SANS and some will have traveled with the chorus on previous trips.
In Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, Czech Republic, Siberia, China, South Africa, Cuba, Vietnam, Cambodia, Brazil, the USA, thousands have shared experiences and created lasting friendships through music. SANS has sponsored many music exchanges and high school language exchanges; and has made possible countless personal ties.
