SINGING, DANCING, DRUMMING . . . THE WORLD!
Boston City Singers serves 500 extraordinary singers aged 4 – 18 in 15 different programs, most of whom live in the Boston’s urban neighborhoods. Our music and creative youth development programs are located in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain and North Cambridge. Admission is need-blind. Tuition is based on a sliding scale and no child is denied access to our programs for lack of family resources.
With robust social justice initiatives and strong leadership programs, Boston City Singers members are supported on an upward trajectory. One hundred percent of our graduates are accepted at 4-year colleges. Alumni, many of whom come from at-risk neighborhoods, have gone on to attend leading universities including Harvard (6), Julliard, University of Massachusetts, Boston University, Oberlin, Stanford, Columbia and New York University, most with substantial scholarship. Graduates are educators, government policy experts and social workers, musicians and arts administrators, engineers, college recruiters, medical professionals and financiers.
Boston City Singers’ TOUR CHOIR is our most programmatic and time-intensive program. Members, aged 11–18 prepare music in many languages in 2–9 parts, and take regular movement and improvisation classes. Many also participate in the World Rhythm Ensemble, which performs separately and in most major Boston City Singers’ concerts. The Tour Choir travels internationally in alternating years to expand their cultural, historical and geographic knowledge and perform in concerts and festivals. They have travelled to South Africa, New Zealand and Australia, Costa Rica, Argentina, Canada, the Czech Republic, Croatia and Bosnia + Herzegovina.
