    Social Change Through Music

    The Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) is an innovative arts education organization that unites area children ages 7-18 across differences of race, religion and socioeconomic status. Here they discover the power of singing, and transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Through intensive choral training and unsurpassed performing experiences locally, nationally and around the world, the BCC enhances the 21st century education and social development of youth as musicians, productive citizens and future leaders. Young people from underserved, lower-income urban and suburban households are often the unassuming leaders who need help in finding their voices. BCC is a proven, life-changing outlet for their voices to be empowered and heard. Beginning with only 20 children in a pilot training program, today the BCC serves nearly 450 singers in eleven choirs in five Boston locations.
