    Welcome to Children's Chorus of Springfield


    The Children's Chorus of Springfield (CCS) was established in 2007 by
    E. Wayne Abercrombie, Professor Emeritus of Choral Music at the
    University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and Vera S. Baker, retired
    Director of Visual & Performing Arts for the Springfield Public
    Schools. In 2014, the CCS hired Marcos Carreras as its new Executive
    and Artistic Director to lead the choir.

    The CCS is comprised of students representing 25 elementary and middle
    schools in Springfield. It is the only choir of its kind in the city,
    serving as vocal music ambassadors in the tradition of children's
    choirs in many of this country's major cities. The organization is
    based on the founders' belief that as children participate in a choir,
    they receive invaluable musical and performance training, learn how to
    work together, gain self-discipline and control, and become
    responsible citizens of the world.

    The mission of the Children's Chorus of Springfield is threefold: to
    teach music literacy through singing, to cultivate a generation of
    leaders and ambassadors for Springfield through song, and to encourage
    the active participation of our city's youth in the Springfield's
    vibrant arts community.

    The Chorus has performed at a number of venues, including Springfield
    Symphony Hall, The Mass Mutual Center, the Basketball Hall of Fame,
    Trinity United Methodist Church, Smith College, Western New England
    University, The Log Cabin, Bing Arts Center, Providence Place, and the
    Springfield Sheraton – with more concerts planned for this coming

    Audition for the 2014/15 season!
