We are The Bija Children’s Choir— Sonoma County’s world folk chorus for young people who love to sing, serving over 900 students and 8500 audience members since 2007.

Our founding director Maria Ana Bija is a classically-trained lifelong professional musician and educator with a deep passion for world music & dance.  She’s a kind, joyful, skillful and creative artistic leader, assisted by her kindred fellows Colleen Toner Rogers & Annemarie Goslow Zwicker.
