Do you know a child who loves to sing? We would love to hear them! Boston Children's Chorus (BCC) invites singers, aged 7-18, to join us this fall for the 2021-2022 season! BCC is a creative, affirming, and vibrant community with over 300 young artists 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. Our singers have also performed at iconic Boston landmarks including Fenway Park, the Hatch Shell, and Boston’s Symphony Hall. Weekly rehearsals create a safe space to hone 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 many cultures that characterize Boston’s landscape.

The session will be scheduled for 10 minutes and singers will be evaluated on vocal production, level of music literacy, and presentation. Please prepare a song that you love to sing, in any style.
