Working To Tear Down The Walls That Divide Us!




Common Chords is a 501c3 educational organization dedicated to using music and the arts to tear down the walls that divide us.


Co-founders Rev. Robert Jones and Matt Watroba are award-winning performers and creative collaborators.  They have also been musical partners, educators and friends for thirty-five years. Their message is that we all have more in common to celebrate than we have to fight about.  


Robert and Matt use traditional and original music and stories to emphasize the importance of understanding and valuing the perspective of every person. Their programs center around learning to question the answers that each of us hold as truth.


Robert and Matt have presented in places as diverse as corporate board rooms, classrooms, prisons and houses of worship.
