CCC getting the holiday spirit
"Diversity Inspires Change" is the theme for the 2022 Songs of the Season concert. The annual holiday concert will be performed virtually again this year on the Chicago Community Chorus YouTube channel Saturday, December 11 at 6:45pm. This year choir members were offered the option to rehearse and perform in person or virtually. While presenting occasional technical challenges, Dr. Hampton and the music staff persistently worked through the problems. The result is a a concert that draws attention to issues of diversity but yet uplifts the listener. Of course we'll perform traditional holiday carols in our unique CCC style. This year's concert is free but concert goers must register on Eventbrite.com. Donations can be made on this site and on Eventbrite.com.
CCC returns for a hybrid 2021-2022 season
Dr. Keith Hampton, CCC's Artistic Director/ Founder, announced that the upcoming 2021-2022 season would be hybrid, including both virtual and in-person rehearsals. Rehearsals begin in September and members who are vaccinated can rehearse in person with socially distanced seating. Non-vaccinated members and others who chose can rehearse virtually. The choir successfully performed two virtual concerts in the last season. Whether this season's concerts are virtual or in-person has yet to be determined.

CCC successfully performs major Beethoven work
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. Also please subscribe to our YouTube channel to hear other CCC recordings.
The choir bids farewell to Music Director
CCC said goodbye to Music Director/Project Manager, Brandon Brown this season. Brandon left the Chicago area to pursue a Masters Degree in Conducting at the University of Missouri. While the choir is proud of Brandon for continuing his education, he will sorely be missed.
