The learning doesn’t stop after school.

Students in grade 3 and up are invited to join our after-school Neighborhood Choir Program by attending a New Singer Day! The below locations are hosting New Singer Days this January where students can participate in an open rehearsal followed by a quick, simple audition (no prior experience necessary!) and join our family of singers across Chicago.

Interested in joining?

About the Audition Process

We accept new members in the Neighborhood Choir Program during New Singer Days several times throughout the year at each rehearsal location. No prior experience is necessary to join the Neighborhood Choir Program. The audition process is quick and simple, open to students in grades 3 and up. Singers do not need to prepare anything for the audition. We are looking for students who can match pitch and have an enthusiasm for singing.

Additionally, we seek students who aspire to excellence and are willing and able to commit to twice-weekly rehearsals for the season.

About Tuition 

Tuition is charged to cover a portion of the actual cost of the program to the organization. Based on a sliding scale, tuition is determined by family household income in order to make programs affordable regardless of financial situation. Additional fees may apply, including uniform or camp fees.

Chicago Children’s Choir works with all families regardless of circumstance to make tuition accessible.
