Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) is committed to providing the youth of Greater Boston and beyond an opportunity to experience the transformative power of music. As a part of our regular programming, we offer ensembles at a variety of times, locations, and skill levels from September through May each year. BCC has 13 different choirs that rehearse at 4 different sites throughout the city.
Training choirs are comprised of treble singers ages 7-12. This program develops music basics such as theory, interval training, rhythm, and sight-singing techniques. Attention span and concentration are points of focus. Training Choirs meet for 90 minutes, once a week, Monday - Thursday, or Saturday.
For the 2019-2020 school year, choirs meet at four Boston locations:
Intermediate choirs are comprised of treble singers ages 10-14. This level requires individual attentiveness, vocal skills, and theory comprehension while offering varied repertoire and performance experiences. Intermediate Choirs meet two hours once a week while the Intermediate Advanced Choir meets 90 minutes twice a week.
For the 2019-2020 school year, choirs meet at two Boston locations:
