Your family will become a part of a community of singers committed to excellence, and inspired by music from all over the world. We welcome you!


2024-2025 Choir Season (September – May)

Weekly Rehearsals

WCC singers meet weekly throughout the school year to rehearse with their ensembles at 1 Gorham Street in Worcester. The entire chorus performs together at our Holiday concert in early December and our final concert in May.


Exciting collaborative performances with other choral and musical groups are important to WCC. Last year, our middle and high school ensembles collaborated and performed with the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra and the Salisbury Singers at the 2023 Mechanics Hall Holiday Pops. This spring, we’ll be collaborating with Assumption University Choirs and performing at one of the Railers games, singing alongside Salisbury Singers or Assabet Valley Mastersingers, and capping off the year with an amazing spring concert and a performance at the WooSox! Our Artistic Director may even have some other plans in the works!

Travel & Fun Events

Singers aged 11 and up enjoyed a wonderful opportunity to sing with youth from all over the U.S. at the Crescent City Choral Festival in June 2023. Who knows where we’ll go next time? WCC tours approximately every 2 years.

Social events and outings are regularly scheduled to make time for fun and friendship.

Worcester Children’s Chorus has several choral ensembles, offering age-appropriate instruction for singers ranging in age from 8 through 18. Artistic staff place children appropriately based on their audition. In the younger choirs, there will be some age/grade overlap, based upon a child’s previous musical experiences.


Auditions are held at 1 Gorham Street, Worcester, MA 01605. All children and youth ages 8-18 (min 3rd grade) interested in joining the choir are required to audition. Complete the Audition Form to schedule your audition. We offer spring, late summer and January audition dates and will also happily audition on request. An audition with our directors is an encouraging, low-key experience and an opportunity to meet our artistic staff. They take great care to ensure that each singer is placed in the ensemble that best suits their ability level so they can sing, shine, and soar!


It is our mission to create a diverse and inclusive community where all children and teens who love to sing feel welcome and can thrive. We are proud to provide financial assistance to families in need. For all of our programs, we do not want cost to be a factor in a child’s participation.

We strive to maintain standards of choral excellence in a nurturing, learning environment. The Singer & Family Handbook provides specific expectations required for membership in our auditioned ensembles.

DA CAPO (GRADES 3, 4 & 5)

Da Capo is the WCC’s entry-level choir for children in Grades 3, 4 and 5. It is a friendly, non-competitive environment where each child develops healthy vocal habits, learns the basics of reading music, and learns to thrive in a musical community of friends. The Da Capo singers participate in 2-4 performances throughout the year.


The Bel Canto ensemble is for students in Grades 6 – 8 who demonstrate the ability to sing at an intermediate level, or who have completed at least one year in the Da Capo or Young Artists choir. These singers build on their music literacy skills and continue to develop their individual voices. They also deepen their understanding of what it means to be part of a friendly, harmonious musical community. The Bel Canto singers participate in 3-6 performances throughout the year.


The Cantare ensemble is for students in High School who demonstrate a good deal of previous musical experience, a strong personal connection to music, and a commitment to rehearsing and performing challenging repertoire at a high level. Singers will develop their individual and choral vocal skills while mastering more difficult music across a variety of musical styles. The Cantare singers participate in 3-6 performances throughout the year.


The Baritone ensemble is open to students in Middle and High School who have changing voices. The changing voice is a developing instrument, and members will receive dedicated instruction on how to navigate this change. Singers are challenged to develop their individual and choral vocal skills while mastering more difficult musical repertoire across a variety of musical styles. The Baritones/Changing Voices singers participate in 3-6 performances throughout the year.


Fenway Park… London… Carnegie Hall… Montreal… WCC singers have performed around the US and internationally. These wonderful trips allow singers ages 11 and up to explore new places and connect with broader musical communities here and abroad. Touring with WCC is an optional activity.

Transformative Trips

Whether it’s a trip to London or NYC, touring with WCC is a transformative experience. We hear again and again from parents that their children come back from a tour with WCC more mature, responsible, confident, and devoted to the choir.

Take-Your-Breath-Away Moments

Choristers enjoy singing under the direction of renowned conductors, meeting other passionate singers from around the world, spending time with friends, and experiencing the magical take-your-breath-away moments of singing with a large festival choir.

“Visiting Canada was a great opportunity to get closer with my friends and try new things while doing what we love. Working with the other choruses in a beautiful church was such a great experience, and it was so fun to travel around with and get to know the other kids more. I really connected with some of my friends during our trip and we still talk about some great memories from traveling around together.”
– Helen, a Cantare singer
