Additional information

Cambridge Children's Chorus was founded in 2012 by Wendy Silverberg, Director of Early Childhood Education and Cambridge resident and Jane Money, Founding Artistic Director at the urging of neighborhood families. Each child is supported by seasoned artistic and administrative staff with the assistance of Cambridge-based teen mentors and graduate student teaching fellows from local conservatories.develop progressive mastery of skills with children from backgrounds different than their own, engaging hearts and minds during the critical after-school hours. Emphasis is placed on personal discipline, teamwork and group cooperation. Through ongoing mentor relationships, singers are connected to a strong and supportive community. Tuition based programs are held online until it is safe to resume in person instruction in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, North Cambridge. 

Boston City Singers has been sharing the joy of music with young people since 1995. We celebrate our ability to provide excellent artistic and youth development programming. No child is denied an opportunity to sing with us because of limited financial means. Financial aid is available based on need and special circumstances. Singers benefit from music literacy and vocal coaching in collaboration with Teaching Fellows from the Longy School of Music. All choruses perform in at least two “family and friends” concerts each year.
