Productions, collaborations, and performance partnerships are a cornerstone of CCC, strengthening young people’s voices and sharing their stories. Artistic Initiative funding has laid the foundation for ongoing work—and given new life to projects in response to the evolving landscape of our city. Support empowered new commissioned works, large-scale performances for broad Chicago audiences, and artistic partnerships that inform the Choir’s creative future.
