Since 2007, the Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir has served youth from Pilsen, Little Village and surrounding neighborhoods.

Our Neighborhood Choir Program is a window onto the world and an incubator for global leadership. With our world-class instruction and empathetic approach to music education, these community-based programs bring to life an emphasis on emotional, intellectual, and social development anchored in musical excellence and creative expression.

In the Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir Program, music education means more than theory, notation, and sight-singing. Through exposure to music that authentically incorporates diverse languages and styles, singers engage in dialogue about the historical and social context of an array of cultures. The impact of this exposure is compounded by the opportunity for students to connect with young people across the city—and globe—breaking down barriers of race, religion, and socioeconomics, forging life-long friendships along the way.

The Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir Program has been invited to sing for community functions and throughout Chicago. Select singers have recently performed in Hansel and Gretel, Carmen, Turandot and La bohème at Lyric Opera of Chicago and Bernstein’s MASS with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia Festival. Members of the Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir have toured throughout the United States, most recently to Michigan, Maryland and Washington D.C., New Orleans, and Indiana.
