        Society;
Whereas on May 20, 1998, the United States Congressional Choral Society debuted

        Republic'';

        freedom, democracy, and understanding of American culture 
        through sponsorship, management, and support of these groups 
        and their derivative ensembles as they communicate through the

        multimedia performances in the District of Columbia and 
        throughout the United States and the world; and
            (3) for promoting musical excellence throughout the
