The Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir rehearses twice weekly at the Rauner YMCA (2700 South Western Avenue). The Rauner Family YMCA is committed to providing opportunities to help people of all ages develop and grow in spirit, mind, and body. Since 2007, the Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir has served boys and girls from Pilsen, Little Village, Bridgeport, McKinley Park, Lawndale, and surrounding neighborhoods. At the Neighborhood Choir level, boys and girls learn proper vocal technique, music reading and sight singing skills, as well as the discipline of singing with musicality, movement, and expression. Singers are offered numerous performance opportunities to exhibit the diverse repertoire reflecting the multicultural mission of Chicago Children’s Choir. In 2008, the Pilsen/Little Village Neighborhood Choir performed for a standing room only crowd of 1,000 people in their Target Community Concert featuring In-School Program Choirs and the world renowned Concert Choir and was featured at the Harris Theater in Millennium Park with Dan Zanes and Friends in May 2009. Past tours have included Northwest Indiana, Appleton, Wisconsin, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.
