Satori was founded in 1993 by David York to provide a community-based choral experience for men.  It was born at a time when political issues affecting people's personal lives in Oregon were very divisive.  David and the founders offered a peaceful alternative for men to come together and sing. Out of this came our mission of "Men Singing Peace."

The word Satori means "a fleeting yet transformational moment of enlightenment; an extraordinary experience of grace, wonder and mystery."  Satori Members have often experienced "Satori Moments" when our music transcends our individual voices; when we become as one, even for that fleeting moment.
