Welcoming immigrant children from around the globe, The Pihcintu Multicultural Chorus helps restart young lives.
War-torn villages, bloodshed, refugee camps, famine, and political turmoil were devastating realities for many of these young singers. Then they were embraced by the warmth, companionship, and harmony that Pihcintu provides.
The power of survival eases but never erases the memory of unthinkable atrocities, physical danger, and personal tragedy. Portland, Maine was an ever-expanding international resettlement community. Its fertile ground brought together children from diverse backgrounds to sing as one. Con Fullam is an award-winning producer, musician, and songwriter. He combined his passion for music with a deep concern for the effect of world issues on children – creating The Chorus with the help of countless supporting souls from all walks of life.
This unique chorus of young women from Cambodia, China, Congo, El Salvador, Egypt, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Viet Nam, British West Indies, and Zambia, along with children whose families have been here for generations, have formed a powerful and permanent bond. Through the healing power of music, these vulnerable, yet brave, young women have learned to trust, hope, and laugh again. The children and their music are transformative. Being in their presence is a life-enhancing experience and they touch the hearts of all who hear them!
