BCC is an independent non-profit organization. Over the past 12 seasons, we haved worked with thousands of children from Greater Boston. Without the generous support of individual, foundation, and corporate support, programming for many Boston-area children would not be possible.
BCC keeps tuition low and on a sliding scale based on household income. 4 out of 5 singers receive financial aid. We rely on the annual support of individuals like you who believe, as we do, in the transformational power of music.
With your support, BCC is able to use music to inspire social change throughout Boston. JOIN US IN THIS CAUSE!
WHAT YOUR GENEROSITY SUPPORTS
Your annual contribution to BCC supports our singers in several ways. Artistic excellence is at the forefront of BCC's work. We believe that quality music-making strengthens the impact of each performance for every singer and audience member. BCC maintains the highest level of artistic excellence with a robust curriculum. Our music library holds more than 1,000 different pieces of music from a range of composers. We are proud to perform a variety of musical styles, including new music commissioned specifically for BCC.
4 out of 5 singers at BCC receive financial aid. Your support allows us to welcome every child who wants to sing, regardless of a family’s financial situation.
Music and youth development curriculum development
Our curriculum provides a specialized learning environment designed to give a rich and rewarding musical experience for each child. Music from all styles and periods forms the basis for our music curriculum. BCC singers also learn important lessons of diligence, discipline, leadership, teamwork, and communication. We prioritize choral excellence as a tool to inspire leadership, activism, and civic engagement of both singers and listeners.
Tours and excursions
Through international and domestic travel, our singers forge lifelong bonds within their own diverse choirs and with people from different cities, countries, and cultures, all while making beautiful music in celebrated venues and becoming active and informed global citizens. Many singers cannot afford this experience without the generous support from our community.
Teaching and accompanist fellowships
Teaching fellows work closely with our conductors and singers, and accompanists participate in every rehearsal and most performances. Teaching fellows and accompanists are students or recent graduates of bachelors’ and masters’ programs in music education, conducting, voice, or piano. We are excited to expand our Teaching Fellow program into a two year Fellowship. The BCC Teaching Fellowship is a guided, self-directed learning experience for those who are passionate about making our world a better place through social justice education and making music with children.
BCC is fortunate to have renowned conductors, composers, musicians, and music educators come to Boston to collaborate with our singers and staff. At the end of these visits, audiences enjoy exhilarating concerts that reveal the remarkable results of these enriching partnerships.
