BCS inspires and trains the artist, student, and ambassador within each child!

Boston City Singers teaches over 350 inspiring young singers in nine choruses. Most BCS singers are boys and girls (ages 4-18) from Boston‘s underserved neighborhoods.  BCS accepts new k-12 students with varying musical abilities; offers a sliding scale tuition.  Over 80% of members require substantial scholarship support to participate. Boston City Singers uses a distinctive curriculum that trains children as young as four years old to learn to sing well. Each  singer progresses through several levels: Kodály Singing Class, Neighborhood Training Chorus, Concert Chorus II, and Concert Chorus. The singers learn about diverse communities and cultures by performing an extensive repertoire including gospel music, international folk music, opera, jazz, and medieval chant.
