The Boston Children's Chorus (BCC) was founded by civic leader Hubie Jones, who has labored for almost five years to address the social problems facing Boston's underserved children and communities. In 2001, Mr. Jones experienced a performance by the nationally renowned Chicago Children's Choir. He returned home determined to replicate this innovative program, as there were no organizations in Boston that effectively combined a mission for artistic excellence with an agenda for social change.
The Boston Children's Chorus was launched in October of 2003. A dynamic arts organization committed to developing youth leadership through musical excellence, BCC’s medium is song, and it is through song that they strive to address the societal challenges of today. With intensive choral training and high-profile public performance experience, children learn discipline, develop leadership skills, and proudly represent the city of Boston as ambassadors of harmony. Since the BCC's inception, their programs have grown rapidly. Twenty children were accepted into an initial pilot program, and in the current season, they have over 500 singers from diverse backgrounds in the Greater Boston area, with twelve choirs in five different locations. BCC is just off celebrating 10 Years of Harmony, and has performed all over the world, from Japan and Australia to Jordan and Mexico.
