Our mission at the Chicago Community Chorus (CCC) is to provide an advanced choral experience to anyone who loves to sing. Founded in 2003, the CCC now numbers over 130 singers from all walks of life and levels of musical experience. We seek to reflect the diversity of Chicago by involving singers from a variety of ethnic backgrounds. We welcome new members to join us! We present at least three performances each year in a variety of venues and are often invited to participate in local musical events. We have performed in many Chicago locations and in neighboring communities. Our repertoire spans the widest possible variety of choral music: from gospel to hip hop, from cantata to oratorio, from jazz to pop. Our choral literature includes works of the great composers from the fifteenth century to the present.
Dr. Keith T. Hampton is our Artistic Director and Founder and was named one of the top 25 Contemporary Composers by the North Central American Choral Directors Association. The CCC is also supported by two talented Associate Conductors, Michelle Douglas and Christopher Joyner, as well as a team of dedicated Board and Staff members. The Chicago Community Chorus seeks to be a leader in choral music education for ALL people who love to sing.
The Chicago Community Chorus will recruit and educate people who love to sing and perform a wide and varied repertoire of choral music.
