For more than 50 years, Choroi-musicians, teachers, therapists, instrument makers and co-workers have developed innovative music instruments which can lead to new experience. On one hand they are designed for a heightened listening perception. One becomes aware of a more subtle sound quality, of the materials from which they are made and of the space in which they resound. On the other hand, Choroi is developing instruments which are easy to manage and to play for everyone, adults and children. With Choroi instruments, music-making becomes infinite, which is especially important for the healthy development of children.
Choroi instruments are created by inspired instrument builders across ten independent, non-profit workshops around Europe. All Choroi instruments are made in team work by experienced instrument builders and disabled or socially disadvantaged people, who, in this way, make an important cultural contribution. Elaborate and patient hand work is as important for the making of a good instrument as it is to select high quality materials.
Today, Choroi is known worldwide for its innovative, high quality musical instruments. All wooden Choroi Musical Instruments use solid European wood with a linseed oil finish.
