CCC NEWS

CCC returns to LIVE concerts

After 2 years of virtual rehearsals and virtual performances CCC members are thrilled to once again perform before a live audience. They'll realize that on April 23 when their annual spring concert will take place at Our Lady of Africa Catholic Church, 615 E. Oakwood Blvd, Chicago.  Director, Dr. Keith Hampton, is especially proud to perform "Make Some Noise, Get in Trouble", a piece commissioned by CCC and 20 other choirs.  The piece, composed by the prolific, Roland Carter, honors the late congressman, John Lewis. Also on the program is the riveting "7 Last Word of the Unarmed" by Joel Thompson, which quotes the last words of 7 men killed by police. Other uplifting songs will be performed providing a relevant, but yet entertaining evening.  The live performance will be broadcast simultaneously on the choir's YouTube channel.  Tickets are now available on Eventbrite.com.

CCC prepares for holiday concert

"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.

Composer Alysia Lee talks about "Say Her Name"

CCC performed a song entitled "Say Her Name" during it's 2021 Songs of the Season concert.  Composed by Alysia Lee, the song expresses the anger and frustration felt by many African Americans in the wake of the deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and others .  Listen to Alysia in her own words.

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 be sorely missed.
