West Town

Formerly the Bucktown Neighborhood Choir

Join the Choir

Since 2019, the West Town Neighborhood Choir has served youth from West Town, Bucktown, and surrounding neighborhoods.

Bucktown 3

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 West Town Neighborhood Choir, 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.

Students in grade 3 and up are invited to join our West Town Neighborhood Choir at any point during the year.
