Thank you for your vision of creating an organization that defies divides in our society, to not only promote social change but also to mold children into great human beings. All of us who participate in the organization would not be who we are today if it was not for the Boston Children’s Chorus, and we owe it all to you. Thank you for providing so many of us with the opportunity to become better people and to do what we love, which is to sing.
