The Choir has worked with great musical directors, such as Bo Johansson (Sweden), Ursa Lah (Slovenia), Kjetil Aamann (Norway), Karmina Silec (Slovenia) and Basilio Astúlez (Spain).

SHENYANG DAILY CHILDREN’S CHOIR – China

Mutually established by Shenyang Daily Group and Shenyang Conservatory of Music, Children's Choir of Shenyang Daily is not only a public welfare children's choir, but also the only children's choir trained by professional music institutions in Shenyang. With the establishing philosophy of "cultivating excellent chorus personnel and making chorus popular among all households", there has been a positive response by the municipal party committee and the municipal government of "building an artistically-preferable city and the chorus capital of North China".

THE NORTH COAST CHORALE – USA

In 1990 a group of singers, dedicated to choral music and the idea that Clatsop County deserved the best, banded together with the sole purpose of sharing their passion for music with the community through the offering of choral concerts.  During its continuous years of existence, the North Coast Chorale has had the opportunity of being led by very talented and dedicated directors, presently by Denise Reed.
