The Boston Children’s Chorus (BCC) is an innovative arts education organization that unites area children ages 7–19 across differences of race, religion, and socio-economic 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 450 singers in eleven choirs in five Boston locations.
NEC and BCC
New England Conservatory is the lead artistic partner of the Boston Children’s Chorus. Through this partnership, BCC and NEC explore opportunities for joint research projects and support one another’s artistic and musical endeavors in a variety of ways, including the potential of current and former NEC students serving as fellows to the BCC. The fellows gain hands-on teaching and conducting experience as they assist in carrying out BCC’s instructional and performance programs.
