At Boston Children’s Chorus, all voices are welcome! Now in its 19th season, BCC is a creative, affirming, and vibrant choral arts community with over 300 young musicians in 8 choirs. Recognized for their captivating performance style, BCC singers have toured to over 10 countries, with notable showcases at London’s Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House in Australia. BCC singers frequently perform at local landmarks including Fenway Park, the Hatch Shell, and Boston’s Symphony Hall. While memorable performances are integral to the program, our unwavering commitment to community, empathy, and equity also shape the BCC experience. Weekly rehearsals create affirming spaces for singers to hone their musical skills and forge lasting friendships. BCC Singers come from over 100 different zip codes in and around Boston, connecting our city’s youth and families through the power of song and artistry. Our programs focus on issues of justice that pertain to advancing recognition, respect, and representation of the diverse cultures that characterize Boston’s landscape.
