Join the Choir Manage Account

The Neighborhood Choir program gives singers in 12 communities across the city the opportunity to bond over shared experiences. These community-based, after-school programs provide relevant and highest quality musical instruction to students ages 8-18 at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, empowering them to embrace their role as creative ambassadors for their communities.

Our 2021/22 Program
