United

Our latest original single by Composer-in-Residence W. Mitchell Owens III was written to honor Uniting Voices Chicago’s decades-long impact—and potent, powerful future. This upbeat song aims to bring together voices from all sides of a divided society to sing as one: as people united.

Egypt Tour 2022

After three years since our last international tour to Spain, Chicago Children's Choir embarked upon a historic trip to Egypt to inspire and change lives through music. With concerts at iconic sites like the Cairo Opera House, Tahrir Cultural Center and the Library of Alexandria, and connections with peers from every corner of the country, this tour was a landmark experience that reaffirmed music's central place in our effort to make a harmonious world.
