Our Vision

Connecticut Children’s Chorus (CCC) unites the youth of greater Hartford through our unparalleled choral training program. We create life-changing musical experiences for highly passionate and skilled young musicians in a supportive, community-centered environment where students’ enthusiasm and love for music is nurtured. Our singers transcend social barriers, make meaningful connections, and build important life skills, while celebrating global awareness.

About CCC

The award-winning Connecticut Children’s Chorus (CCC) is the region’s most comprehensive auditioned youth choral program. Founded in 1991 within The Hartt School Community Division, CCC has grown from one 60-voice choir to six choirs encompassing over 200 students (grades 1 through 12) from 46 Connecticut communities.  Through a variety of musical experiences guided by dedicated, accomplished directors, choir members have the opportunity to:
  • Develop comprehensive musicianship skills including reading music notation, healthy vocal 
    production, ear training, movement, and musical interpretation.

  • Engage in music making through a rich repertoire of choral music from different time periods and different cultures.
  • Perform with professional musical organizations such as the Hartford Symphony, the Hartford Chorale, the New Haven Chorale, the Hartt Symphony, other outstanding children’s choirs from around the country, and professional tour artists that come through Connecticut.
  • Develop self-esteem and a sense of musical accomplishment.
  • Interact with other passionate and skilled peers from different towns in the Hartford area.

  • Travel to choral festivals and conferences in the U.S. and abroad.
  • Work with professional composers and guest directors.
