Did you know that there is a Starbucks Chorus? It was founded in 1997 by Starbucks partners (employees) as a way to give back to the Seattle community. The group debuted at the city’s annual Great Figgy Pudding Street Corner Caroling Competition fundraiser and delighted audiences with their fun, festive and unique take on holiday classics.
Today, the Starbucks Chorus has grown to more than 30 members who share a passion for music and caroling. As we have grown in size and popularity, supporting local causes continues to be the cornerstone of our holiday tradition. We continue to perform annually at Figgy Pudding and, for the past 11 years, we’ve won the competition’s Figlanthropy Award, raising the most money to help the Pike Market Food Bank. This year, we were able to raise $30,000 thanks to the generous donations of friends, fellow partners and customers.
Our partners took their passion and created a special tradition. The Chorus loves what it does, and even more so, loves sharing that passion with the community every year. We invite you to take a further look at what we do.
