About Us

It’s about more than learning how to carry a tune. It’s about learning how to carry yourself as the future leader you are.

We are now Uniting Voices.

Our name has changed but our song remains the same.

Founded in 1956 and inspired by the burgeoning Civil Rights Movement, Uniting Voices Chicago (formerly Chicago Children’s Choir) is rooted in the belief that music is the most powerful vehicle for fostering mutual understanding and respect between young people of all races, ethnicities, socioeconomic backgrounds, religions, gender identities and sexual orientations.

Since its founding, we have grown from a single choir into an internationally renowned network of in-school and after-school programs that serve thousands of students across the city of Chicago every year. Uniting Voices Chicago offers a performance-based learning experience that includes innovative creative partnerships and artistic endeavors—from regular appearances at Lyric Opera and Ravinia Festival to features on high caliber recording projects such as Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book and The Big Day.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility

Discovering common ground and celebrating our differences through music is in our DNA.
