Join the Choir

Since 2001, the Humboldt Park Neighborhood Choir has served youth from Humboldt Park and surrounding neighborhoods.

Our Neighborhood Choir program is a window onto the world and an incubator for global leadership. With our world-class instruction and empathetic approach to music education, these community-based programs bring to life an emphasis on emotional, intellectual, and social development anchored in musical excellence and creative expression.

In the Humboldt Park Neighborhood Choir, music education means more than theory, notation, and sight-singing. Through exposure to music that authentically incorporates diverse languages and styles, singers engage in dialogue about the historical and social context of an array of cultures. The impact of this exposure is compounded by the opportunity for students to connect with young people across the city—and globe—breaking down barriers of race, religion, and socioeconomics, forging life-long friendships along the way.

The Humboldt Park Neighborhood Choir has been invited to sing for community functions in Humboldt Park and frequently collaborates with the Rogers Park Neighborhood Choir. The Humboldt Park Neighborhood Choir was the original host of Canto Latino, a powerful celebration that has evolved into a core event across all CCC programs. Select singers have recently performed in Turandot and La bohème at Lyric Opera of Chicago, Bernstein’s MASS at Ravinia Festival and a holiday concert with the Northbrook Symphony. Members of the Humboldt Park Neighborhood Choir have toured throughout the United States including to: New Orleans, Wisconsin and Michigan.
