Boston City Singers runs several choir programs through it’s Dorchester-based organization, from Kodaly Singing Classes for grade 2, Training Chorus for grades 3 to 5; Cantare for grades 6 through 12; and Harmony for grades 9 through 12. The Singers also have a popular Tour Choir, open to kids in grades 6 through 12.
“The Tour Choir differs from Harmony and Cantare in that it is a much more intensive program and members have an opportunity to perform outside the New England area,” explains Val Kennedy, a board member.
“Every two years, Tour Choir members have an opportunity to live and perform in a foreign country as part of a three-week residency program aimed at fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity. The residency also helps foster self-reliance and broaden intellectual horizons.“
Recent destinations have included South Africa, Costa Rica, Argentina, Canada and New Zealand. The Tour Choir’s 2019 residency is tentatively slated for Croatia.
