10 Years of Harmony
Celebrating 10 Years of Harmony, BCC enters a milestone season with more singers than ever before: 450+ singers in 12 choirs from 5 locations. Through a medium of song, BCC sends young disciplined leaders back into their communities. Participation in BCC requires spirit and hard work - something that has been reflected down through the years on stage through musical excellence.
The 2012 - 13 season is filled with bigger concerts than every before, special guests, re-branding and exciting new partnerships, and then rounded out with a tour to Southeast Asia.
We would like to thank lead event sponsors such as Loomis Sayles and Citizens Bank Foundation, and yearlong partners able Banking. Our media partners: Boston Globe, Classical New England, MetroBoston and Dorchester Reporter.
Partnerships, youth leadership and artistic excellence is both the formula and the result for impactful growth of the BCC program.
