Par and St. John's Choir Perform on Good Morning America


Robin Roberts was in Springfield, Oh. and stopped by St. John Missionary Baptist church. She was traveling across Ohio covering the Presidential Campaign.
She wanted to visit a church and contacted Pastor Brown of St. John's Missionary Baptist Church.  He called on Par to put a choir together.  They sang for Ms. Roberts and discussed the concerns that are influencing their votes for the Presidential election.

Arlin "Par" Tolliver Has A Vision

He wants to revitalize your dreams.

He wants to bring that creative side out of you while allowing you to fulfill your dream. 

All of your life you've wanted to dance, sing, play an instrument, perform on stage or speak in public. 

Par realizes that many have childhood dreams which for one reason or another were never able to be accomplished.

Par's vision, Muzika Inc., will give you and your family a chance to pursue those dreams.  It's never too late.  Muzika is a creative voice in performing arts.

In an effort to provide spiritual mentorship, Par leads the Muzika Youth Topical Talk and is proud to have baptized five of the group members.

Muzika wants to be an arm to the city and county schools and colleges where students can be encouraged to pursue a future in music or the arts once they realize their potential in their chosen fields.

John Legend Supports Muzika


Save The Music

Muzika shares a similar goal with the Save The Music program sponsored by VH1.  Save The Music is revitalizing the music programs in public schools across the country.  Muzika's goals include other arts programs as well as music, but both programs want to make the arts available to all who have a desire to learn.  Did you know that children who study music do better in math and other subjects as well?  Click on the link below to see the public service announcement by John Legend, John Mayer and many other music artists.

Donate Musical Instruments

Many people have a passion for the arts.  Often children try out an art, such as playing a musical instrument, then realize it's not what they want to pursue.  Many parents are then left with used musical instruments that are not being played any longer.  Donate your used instruments to Muzika to help another child who cannot afford to purchase one.  We are currently looking for brass instruments, trumpets, saxophone, trombones,
drum sets, Hammond B3, A100, C3, organs, with Hammond Leslie's Speakers. 
Muzika is a 501(c)3 organization and donations may be tax deductible.  Contact Par Tolliver for more details.
