DETROIT CHILDRENS CHOIR INC
May 25, 2011

My experience with the Detroit Children's Choir was absolutely incredible! I volunteered last year (2010) for their big annual concert, assisting in the general organization of the happenings of the day. Living in Boston, I have very limited opportunities to interact with such worthy causes in my hometown, and this experience was more than worth it!
I had so much fun getting to know the kids! They all come from different parts of the city and have so many stories to share. When the performance started, I was immediately awestruck with the power of their voices. The impact they had as I witnessed their dedication and talent come together brought tears to my eyes...three times! Watching all of these kids work together to achieve such beauty was just amazing. You could see the confidence and self worth the kids had gained by being a part of the choir.
I highly recommend attending their performances and supporting the organization's mission to provide music education to at risk youth. There is so much that DCC can do for the children of Detroit. Please support their efforts any way you can.
