It's a day three years in the making.

One of our most anticipated and largest programs of the year is back for the first time since 2019.

Thousands of youths from every Chicago zip code will gather to perform alongside Grammy-Award winner Peter CottonTale, as well as acclaimed opera singer Jonathan Green (CCC Alum), Eurovision star Vasil Garvanliev (CCC Alum), Chicago’s The Juju Exchange & Ayanna Woods (CCC Alum and Grammy Award-nominee) and other guest artists to celebrate 65 years of the Choir changing lives through music.

We are committed to hosting inclusive, accessible events that enable every audience member to engage fully. Should you need an accommodation of any kind for any reason, or for inquiries about accessibility, please contact us at info [at] ccchoir [dot] org.

This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
