Aaron Nigel Smith & 1 World Chorus
For more than 15 years, Aaron Nigel Smith has worked to educate, empower and entertain youth and families around the world. He teaches chorus & drumming in Oregon & Washington through 1 World Chorus, Young Audiences, and the Right Brain Initiative.
In 2009 Aaron and his wife of 19 years Diedre, formed the non-profit 1 World Chorus with the mission of promoting peace internationally through choral singing, drumming and multimedia production. More than 5000 youth in Portland, Los Angeles, New York, Kenya & Jamaica have participated in 1 World Chorus programs. The Rox in Sox Children’s Music & Book Festival is a project that Aaron spearheaded. During this free charity event, families in the US & Jamaica enjoy a day of free world class music, authors, family friendly activities and food vendors. Socks, shoes and books are donated at the entrance of the event in the US and distributed to youth in Jamaica & Kenya.
