The Gesangverein Arion's purpose is to nurture and promote German choral singing. To reach this goal, the choir holds regular rehearsals (Monday nights), presents concerts (Fall and Spring) and places itself in service to the public.

The Organization is non-partisan and neutral with regard to religion.

Rehearsals and concerts are held at the German House on First Hill in Seattle, 613 - 9th Ave. Each concert consists of 4-part pieces from Classic and Folk music, primarily in German, but with some English, Latin and other languages. For other information, see
