Programs: Boston City Singers' principal activities are weekly rehearsals, an active schedule of performances, and related mentoring and coaching activities designed to support the personal development and education of our singers. Our programs are led by members of artistic and youth development staff and include:

A. After School Neighborhood Training Chorus Programs
Kodály Singing Classes for children aged 4-6 and Neighborhood Training Chorus programs for those aged 7-11 with locations in Dorchester, Mattapan/Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, and North Cambridge.

B. In-School Choral Programs
Held weekly throughout the school year for 2nd-7th grades. Collaborations and partnerships broaden our reach into our target neighborhoods. Many continue with their training in our Concert Chorus after the age of 11.

C. Concert Chorus Program
With numbers growing, and skill level and time availability varying, we have initiated a three-tiered system - Cantare, Tour Choir, and AP Harmony - to comprise the Concert Chorus. The singers in this program rehearse twice each week for 4+ hours, and perform 20+ concerts a year.
1. Cantare: a training program for singers aged 11- 14, most of whom are new to Boston City Singers. They attend weekly intensive classes in music literacy and age-appropriate vocal coaching.
2. The Tour Choir: Singers aged 11 – 18, receive advancing music theory and small group voice lessons and travel nationally and internationally to perform and participate in our cultural immersion tour programs.
3. AP Harmony, an a cappella group for our older singers aged 17 – 18. They rehearse separately, once each week, gaining advanced skills and experience in preparation for college auditions.

Mission:
Boston City Singers' mission is to provide the highest level of musical training and extensive performance opportunities to children and young people of all ages. Our program is designed to inspire personal development, emphasize teamwork, celebrate diversity, and foster goodwill worldwide.
Results:
Boston City Singers never has and will never turn away a member for inability to pay. In order for us to provide chorus and youth development programs to the children in our targeted inner-city neighborhoods, we must raise funds to ensure the sustainability of our programming.
