About this Organization:
Boston Children’s Chorus harnesses the power of music to connect our city’s diverse communities, cultivate empathy, and inspire social inquiry. Our work rigorously explores the question of whose stories are heard, seen, and celebrated. Through collaborative artistry and dialogue, we actively encourage singers to inquire critically about issues impacting them, their families, and our communities. Over time, this regular practice of critical inquiry cultivates an empathetic, inclusive perspective, allowing our singers to understand what they believe, what they value, and how those affect others. Equipped by a diverse narrative, critical perspective, and empathy, our singers exercise their power to affect change. They become leaders in their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities, advocating for themselves and for others. As our singers move in the world, they strive to dismantle injustice.
