Is your son a little Pavarotti? Your daughter an Edith Piaf in training? Or do they sound like even American Idol wouldn't
want them? If they've got the drive, that's what matters at the Glen Ellyn Children's Chorus.
Since 1964, the
chorus has welcomed children with a passion for music and turned them into world-class singing sensations. Young members regularly
sing with the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra and have traveled to all corners of the globe, packing the house at New York's Carnegie Hall and wowing audiences in Beijing.
All are welcome to join the chorus, with scholarships provided to make sure children from all walks of life can participate. And as the singer's skills grow, performing ensembles gives choristers at various levels a chance to share their voices with their communities and – eventually – the world.

Apollo Chorus, one of the oldest and largest all-volunteer choruses in the country.
