BCC harnesses the power and joy of music to unite our city's diverse communities and inspire social change. Our singers transcend social barriers in a celebration of shared humanity and love of music. Through intensive choral training and high-profile public performance experience (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. Since the BCC's inception, our programs have grown rapidly. Twenty children were accepted into an initial pilot program, and in the current season, we have over 450 singers representing over 50 of Boston's urban and suburban neighborhoods participating in eleven different choirs in four Boston locations: the South End, Allston-Brighton, South Boston and Dorchester.
