Since 2003, the Garfield Park/Off The Street Club Neighborhood Choir has served youth from East and West Garfield Park. Singers in the Garfield Park/Off The Street Club Neighborhood Choir must become a member of Off The Street Club to join the ensemble.
Neighborhood Choir singers perform a number of times throughout the year while learning proper vocal technique, music reading and sight singing skills, and the discipline of singing with musicality, movement and expression.
The Garfield Park/Off The Street Club Neighborhood Choir has been invited to sing for community functions in Garfield Park and beyond. In December 2017, the Choir sang carols during intermission of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Merry, Merry Chicago! at Symphony Hall. In 2009, the ensemble performed in Douglas Park as part of the Chicago Youth Music Initiative led by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Recent tours include New Jersey and New York.
