Whereas in February 1996, several Senators and Members of the House of

        Independence;
Whereas in April 1996 several Senators and Members of the House of

        Society;
Whereas on May 20, 1998, the United States Congressional Choral Society debuted 
        at St. Joseph's Church on Capitol Hill, with standing ovations following 
        its rendition of the ``Song of Democracy'' and the ``Battle Hymn of the 
        Republic'';
Whereas on March 13, 1999, the United States Congressional Philharmonic 
        Orchestra String Quartet played before the Ambassador to the United 
        States from Canada at the Embassy of Canada in the District of Columbia;

Whereas the United States Congressional Philharmonic Society is approved as a 
        501(c)(3) nonprofit organization under the Internal Revenue Code and is 
        a corporation in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware;
Whereas the United States Congressional Philharmonic Society will offer free 
        concerts to the public in the Washington metropolitan area;

        series of concerts focusing on themes such as Celebrations of America,

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That it is the sense of the Congress that the United States

        Congressional Choral Society and the United States 
        Congressional Philharmonic Orchestra;
            (2) for having as its mission the promotion of patriotism, 
        freedom, democracy, and understanding of American culture 
        through sponsorship, management, and support of these groups 
        and their derivative ensembles as they communicate through the 
        international language of music in concerts and other 
        multimedia performances in the District of Columbia and 
        throughout the United States and the world; and
            (3) for promoting musical excellence throughout the 
        educational system, from pre-school through post-graduate, and 
        encouraging people of all ages to commit to the love and 
        expression of musical performance.
