"For each child that's born a morning star rises and sings to the universe who we are.”
- Dr. Ysaye M. Barnwell from Lessons (1993)
For two decades, Boston Children’s Chorus has represented our city—reflecting and celebrating its diversity and raising voices for social change. In the 200th anniversary of Boston’s incorporation as a city, BCC singers celebrate our city’s history of civil rights activism and draw attention to the work still ahead of us. While exploring an inequitable past and the generational impact of these injustices on the Boston we live in today, BCC singers celebrate our 20th anniversary by recommitting to our core mission—inspiring inquiry, cultivating empathy, and becoming the future generation of Boston leaders.
In the 20th Anniversary season, BCC is exploring our past, present, and future impact in the Greater Boston community. There are many exciting performance opportunities for our singers to collaborate with award-winning artists, including White Snake Projects, Castle Of Our Skins, and hip-hop artist/activist Zakiyyah. BCC singers will take the stage again at Boston Symphony Hall, Old South Church, Calderwood Hall at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, and many more!
We are excited to kick off the 2022-2023 season this September! Both returning singers and new singers can register here. New singers and families, please sign up for a placement session prior to registration. See down below for placement session information.
