After several months of virtual rehearsals, the Chicago Community Chorus presented its Virtual Beethoven Mass in C Major on YouTube. The concert received unanimous acclaim and has received over 1500 views to date. Dr. Hampton and assistant conductors, Michele Dougas, Christopher Joyner and Music Director Brandon Brown, undaunted by the challenges of choral singing during a pandemic, led the choir through an unprecedented 2020-2021 season. Members rehearsed online using ZOOM and My Choral Coach and produced an individual video which was combined with the orchestra. The final product exceeded all of our expectations and resulted in one of the choirs finest works to date. You can view the concert on this website.

CCC's Songs of the Season a huge success
CCC's Virtual Songs of the Season concert took place December 12 via YouTube and exceeded expectations in every way. With over two thousand views, Dr. Hampton was thrilled that the concert was so well received. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago First Lady, Amy Eshleman provided the welcome to our virtual audience. Special guests, The Good Samaritans were excellent, as was every soloist. The choir's stellar performance reflected their hard work and persistence.

Dr. Hampton teaches virtual rehearsal techniquese. It's easy.D
Dr. Keith Hampton, CCC's Artistic Director/ Founder, recently presented a webinar for the United Church of Christ Musicians Association (UCCMA) on virtual choir rehearsal techniques. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Dr. Hampton continued rehearsing CCC via ZOOM. It was a challenging endeavor to be sure, but by the time the choir's summer break approached most of the singers didn't want to stop meeting.
Even singers who were shy about singing alone said they had gained confidence.
