The Boston Children's Chorus (BCC) is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic arts education organization that purposefully unites area children ages 7-18 across differences of race, religion and economic status. Our singers transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Through intensive choral training and high-profile public performance experiences (locally, throughout the U.S. and around the world), they learn discipline, develop leadership skills, and proudly represent the city of Boston as ambassadors of harmony. We were founded in 2003 by Hubie Jones, whose vision was to inspire diverse audiences with the power of children singing, both through their sound and in their message. The BCC's mission is to harness the power and joy of music as a catalyst to unite our city's diverse communities and inspire social change.
Singing is the major focus of the musical experience in Boston Children's Chorus. Singing is a powerfully personal means of musical expression. We hope this experience will form the foundation of a life‐long, positive relationship with music for the singers and their families.
Although music is the core of BCC programs, we also explore developmental goals with the singers. Through music education and performing, BCC singers learn important lessons of hard work, discipline, leadership, teamwork, poise, presentation, and communication. These traits focus on three pillars that all BCC singers learn as they grow through involvement our community and the world around them – respect, responsibility, and a love of learning.
We strive to reach every child who loves to sing, especially those from urban neighborhoods who are underserved. BCC substantially subsidizes the cost of tuition to keep our programs open to all. In cases of financial hardship, we offer scholarship assistance that reduces our low tuition even further. We are committed that no child who loves to sing will be turned away for financial reasons.
