Jonathan Palant, founder and director of this nonprofit organization, says, “The Dallas Street Choir offers a community for those in need of one. Our members have the opportunity to practice responsibility, commitment, and professionalism, as well as improve their musical skill. We strive to build the self-esteem of our singers through a variety of performance-based activities. Over 300 individuals have attended at least one Dallas Street Choir rehearsal since its inception one year ago.”
