In Fall 2021, Chicago Children’s Choir looks forward to the return to in-person learning! We will modify our schedule according to city guidelines to create a safe environment for our singers to come together in smaller groups, wearing masks and maintaining appropriate distance. If restrictions should change, CCC will be prepared to pivot as needed, while still achieving our artistic and educational goals.
Dimension is a unique ensemble for singers age 12 and up who are beginning the vocal transition into emerging tenor and baritone voices. This ensemble offers many performance opportunities independently and with other CCC programs.
Singers learn to understand their own voices through ensemble singing, vocal technique, solo opportunities, music theory and sight-reading. Training and repertoire are specifically designed for this age and developmental level, including diverse styles and a special emphasis on musicality, movement and expression.
The 2021-22 program year runs September 7, 2021 through June 11, 2022 and includes:
- Weekly rehearsals and vocal technique sessions
- Regular music theory sessions
- Several performance opportunities throughout the year
- Workshops throughout the year by guest artists and culture bearers
- Connections with youth across the city and around the world
Rehearsals will end 5-10 minutes early to allow for transition and air exchange between groups. All schedules are subject to change or extend as guidelines allow.
Younger singers who are experiencing voice change should contact Jackie Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org by June 7, 2021 to set up a voice placement for the 2021/22 season.
CCC has a long-standing commitment to serving children and families regardless of their financial situation. All programs are heavily discounted through the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations, allowing us to remove a financial barrier to participation.
