The music reaches a part inside me that only music can reach. The feeling I get is joyful and it makes me feel good about myself.

In every aspect, (CCW) easily rivals the finest children’s choirs anywhere— even Austria’s Vienna Boys Choir.

Our Parents

During her 6 years with CCW, our daughter was offered choral opportunities that we couldn’t find anywhere else. She was able to develop her vocal abilities and discipline which then enabled her to excel at and be recognized for her love of singing. Now that she has graduated CCW and is studying voice in college, we have promised her that CCW will stay at the top of our charitable donations list and she promises to do the same when she reaches the MET—and she’s sure she will, thanks to CCW. We are forever indebted.

Children’s Chorus of Washington truly represents the nation’s capital with its quality education and performance. The Embassy of Finland is pleased with its friendship with the chorus, which has done a remarkable job of introducing Finnish music to the Washington DC community. The children’s ability to learn foreign languages is just as phenomenal as their singing skills.

…it has been my privilege to listen to and work with the Children’s Chorus of Washington. The degree of flexibility and musicianship is truly outstanding. One forgets the ages of these young performers and is simply transported to the musical worlds they inhabit.
— Leonard Slatkin, Former Music Director, National Symphony Orchestra
Yesterday was truly a ray of sunshine in a very bad period in the life of Murch. The Children’s Chorus brought smiles to many faces who have not had them for a while. It was a gift to see true musicianship in action, from not only the singers but the pianist as well. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all.
